How to Become a USSF Grassroots Referee
Requirement – 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 when you sign up.
Part 1 - Sign up for the Grassroots Online Lessons.
There are 21 modules in the online portion. All 21 modules must be completed in full. The online lessons take approximately 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours to complete in full.
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 – 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.
