How to Become a USSF Grassroots Referee

The 2023 Registration process is open.

Once one registers, completes both requirements (online lessons and attend an in-person clinic) they will earn their 2023 USSF Referee badge.

How to Become a USSF Grassroots Referee

Requirements – You must be 13 or older.

There is a two-part process that must be completed to become a licensed USSF Grassroots Referee.

Sign up for a Grassroots online course. You will pay the fee ($80) when you sign up.

Part 1 – Sign up for the Grassroots Online Lessons.

There are 9 modules in the online portion. All 8 modules must be completed in full before you can select an in-person clinic.

Part 2 – Select an in-person clinic to attend.

Once you complete the entire online lessons, you’ll be able to select an in person clinic to go to. You will see the words – ONLINE LESSONS COMPLETED highlighted in green to know that you can select the in-person clinic you wish to attend.

The in-person clinic is 3.5 hours. This is the field session done outdoors.

Lots of important information is given to all attendees at the in-person clinics – who you will work for, how to get games, where to get uniforms, etc.

You must complete both parts in order to become a referee.
