Information For Current Referees
US Soccer Certified Referees work with US Soccer Certified Referee Assignors to schedule their games. We have many certified assignors in the DC/Virginia region. A list of assignors, along with their conact information, can be found here.
A critical item in a successful match is the a pregame conference with the referee team. Each member of the team needs to know what will happen in given situations to ensure that those situations are dealt with properly.
Only take assignments for United States Soccer Federation affiliated matches from certified USSF assignors. Do not take assignments from coaches or any other non-certified assignor. This includes...
If you display a yellow or red card for misconduct during your game, you must do the paperwork!
The paperwork is as much a part of the game as calling fouls. Team, coach, and player discipline cannot be adjudicated properly unless you turn in ALL misconduct reports promptly and correctly.
