Frequently Asked Questions


#1 What is the minimum age to become a referee?

Effective July 1, 2019, the minimum age is 13 years old.  Anyone who prior to July 1, 2019, was certified as a referee and was less than 13 years old is allowed by US Soccer to continue their referee certification for the 2020 registration year and beyond.

#2 When can I start my entry referee course?

The online course is available immediately upon registration and payment.
If logged out, log back into the member home page and follow the links to start the online course.

#3 How long does it take to complete the course or how long do I have to complete the course?

Work at you own pace on your own time but don’t take too long as there are games waiting to be refereed and assignors waiting to assign those games.


#4 How do I upload my SafeSport certificate and my FYSA Risk Management Card?  See video below:

#5 When do I received my referee badge?

Referee badges will be issued when the registration confirmation is received in the FLSRC office from US Soccer and the badge will be mailed to the registration address previously provided.

#6 When I complete the new referee course, do I have to attend a Field Training Event (FTE)?

Starting July 1st, 2019, US Soccer is requiring attendance at a Field Training Event (FTE).  The FTE is the second part of the new referee course.  Making the transition from the classroom (computer keyboard) to the field is why the FTE’s were created.  Specially trained instructors and administrators follow an approved curriculum to provide each new referee with the necessary skills and knowledge needed for their very first game.  Experienced referees also attend as a refresher to sharpen their skills for their upcoming seasons.
