How to Become a Referee

Interested in Becoming a Referee?

SPFSC is always looking to add to our ranks of certified referees to officiate the numerous games that are hosted in our town.  US Soccer recently announced changes to the certification process which should make this process easier.

How does it work?  There are 2 main steps:

1.) Take an online course (4.5 hours) $20

2.) Take an in-person field clinic (2 hours) $110 - SPFSC tries to host this course at least annually at Southside Soccer Field.  Please pay attention to our website and social media channels for more information.

Registration for the field clinic ($110) includes US Soccer licensing and liability insurance. This fee also includes a US Soccer Referee uniform and Starter Kit from Official Sports.  If you are over 18 a background check is required for $30.

Once you have received your Grassroots license, reach out to so that we can add you to the pool of referees.
