USSF Referee Information
Referees must register with the U.S. Soccer Federation every year to be eligible to work affiliated competitions in the United States.
The cost, process and deadlines for registration vary depending on the State Referee Association where the new or existing referee resides. Contact information and a complete list of the 55 State Referee Associations can be found by clicking here.
These associations support the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program at the local level and should be the first point of contact for all new and existing referees looking for specific information and details on the registration process.
When registering directly with a State Referee Association, information is sent to U.S. Soccer at some point after the registration and certification process has been completed. Some State Referee Associations may require referees to register directly with U.S. Soccer, and in these cases, all registration procedures and deadlines will be communicated directly by the U.S. Soccer Registration Department when appropriate.
