Free Starter Kits for First 800 New Referees


For the 3rd consecutive year,  FLSRC will be making available referee starter kits for new first-time registering referees who qualify.  This 2021 seasonal registration year will be the first time that FREE referee starter kits will be available for the first 800 new referees regardless of age.  Both Youth and Adult referees are eligible this year.  The starter kits are from Official Sports International (OSI), the official uniform supplier of the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program.

This is an excellent promotional idea for clubs to recruit new referees. The new referee must complete all steps of the online/virtual certification course modules, pass the online test, and receive their new USSF ID number to be eligible.

The first 800 new first-time Grassroots Referees registering for 2021 will be tracked in the registration system and monitored for completion.  The mailing/shipping address must be correct at the time of registration in the FLSRC OMS system.   An email from the State Referee Administrator (SRA) is sent to the newly registered referee when the new USSF ID number is assigned and received from US Soccer.

This program was made possible by the FLSRC State Referee Committee with approval from the FL Soccer SRC, Inc. Board of Directors.

    My son was a new ref at the end of last year. Is that considered new? We’re also still waiting for a patch. I’ve sent more than a few follow-up emails to the area and state contacts. Who can be contacted to get this resolved? Feel free to reach out via my email address.

    Hi, my son completed his eval in the spring and recover his number this summer. How does he register to receive the starter kit? He has not received any emails, but found his number by checking the portal. Thanks!!

      If you have already taken the course and registered you don’t qualify.
