Become a New Referee

2022 1st Time Courses opening

Being a soccer referee can be both rewarding and fulfilling. Whether for a young person learning responsibility or an adult contributing to the sport, referee training and development is the primary mission of FL Soccer SRC Inc. (FLSRC). FL Soccer SRC Inc. oversees the administration of the United States Soccer Federation Referee Program within the State of Florida. We are responsible for the development of the appropriate procedures and policies for the certification and oversight of Florida referees, instructors, assessors and assignors.  To this end, FLSRC has established a process to ensure that every person who wishes to become a referee is afforded the opportunity to become registered and certified as a soccer referee with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).

We offer two types of Entry Level Courses.  The Grassroots entry course is for outdoor refereeing.  The Futsal entry course is for indoor refereeing.

Grassroots 1st Time Referee (Outdoor) Course is now open

The Grassroots entry level course offers basic instruction and prepares an individual to become a USSF Soccer Referee.  The Grassroots course has two (2) parts, online video lessons, and Virtual Field Training with videos.  The online video lessons are on two (2) different websites due to licensing issues and proprietary  ownership.  Before you start we strongly recommend that you read the Frequently Asked Questions just in case you get stuck or lost, or have viewing problems once you start the process that is below.

Futsal 1st Time (Indoor Course) set to open August 15th
