How to Become a USSF Referee  

Requirement – you must be 13 or older

There is a two-part process that must be completed to become a licensed USSF Referee:

  • Sign up for a Referee online course. You will pay the fee when you sign up. $80.00

Part 1 - Sign up for the Referee Online Lessons via OMS

There are 6 modules in the online portion. All 6 modules must be completed in full. The online lessons take approximately 6-7 hours to complete.

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 on OMS. 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 to become a referee.
