2) Follow the US SOCCER INSTRUCTIONS to connect to your profile

o    Link:


We encourage all players 13 or older to consider becoming referees.   For anyone wishing to act as a Referee or AR (assistant ref), you have to follow the new steps and take a course to be able to referee this spring or next fall. We really need more referees so all eligible players are encouraged to get Certified, we also encourage parents to get involved as well.  This is a great way to make money (example: line refs make $30 for a 1.5 hour game.)
