After assessing the fields this afternoon, the board has determined that they are too wet and soft to use this weekend. With the prospect of more rain this evening and tomorrow morning, we do not anticipate them getting dry enough to be able to play our games this weekend.
We will be moving games from this weekend to Sunday, September 24th, and Sunday, October 1st, and following our normal make-up game schedule.
9:00 AM will move to 9/24 @ 1:30 PM
10:30 AM will move to 9/24 @ 3:00 PM
12:00 PM will move to 9/24 @ 4:30 PM

1:30 PM will move to 10/1 @ 1:30 PM
3:00 PM will move to 10/1 @ 3:00 PM
4:30 PM will move to 10/1 @ 4:30 PM
We apologize for the schedule changes but know that Abilene really did need the rain this week.
Thanks for working so hard with your players and helping us to work through this delay in our season.

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.
