Referee Training Schedule

Support the game of soccer by becoming a referee.  This is a rewarding way to participate and assist others to play this great game.  Opportunities are available for referees beginning at age 12.  The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) establishes the Grade standards for soccer referees in the US.  The two referee entry Grades which SOCA sponsors trainings for are Grade 9 (for Rec, Challenge and Assistant Referee only for up to U-14 travel) and Grade 8 (for Rec, Challenge, Travel and Adult Leagues).  These do not relate to school grades.  To referee matches for SOCA you must successfully complete the training to become certified as Grade 8 or Grade 9.  DUE TO THE CHANGE IN CLASS FORMAT, SOCA WILL OFFER ONLY GRADE 8 CLASSES FOR 2015.)
