Upgrade to Regional Referee

In affiliation with the US Soccer Federation Referee Program, we offer the Regional Referee upgrade course that can educate and guide an individual USSF member through the upward movement to higher levels of our game.  Referee upgrade requirements are posted in the Library Documents section on the certification requirements document according to referee grade.  The Regional Referee Profile is also posted in the Library Documents section.

There are 8 separate components for upgrade to Regional Referee:  Minimum time in grade must be three (3) consecutive years as a Grassroots Referee, complete the Regional Referee Course and On -Field Experience, take and pass the LOTG Test, pass the Fitness Test, Safety and Compliance completed, three (3) Game assessments, and Game Log History (previous game experience), and must be a minimum of 18 years of age. The Fitness test is a separate course and a separate $30 registration fee.  Game assessments are coordinated with the respective ARA, who also receives the game log, and verifies time in grade. The LOTG Test is included in the online teaching modules. The test is open book.
