We are the official USSF affiliated soccer referee organization for the state of Washington and are responsible for the administration of the USSF National Program for Referee development, including Administration, Registration, Instruction, Assessment and Assignors within the State of Washington.

Through this site you will be able to become a referee, maintain your referee status and upgrade as a referee.  It will also provide similar support for other USSF roles (e.g. Assignors, Assessors and Instructors).

You will find everything you need to know about your status on the Member Information Page. For currently registered Officials, click LogIn on the far right of the top Menu Bar. If you want to become a Referee, click on the entry in the right sidebar, titled "How to Become a Referee."

Update to USSF Recertification Policy

Referees not recertified/reregistered for the next year by June 30 will not be allowed to referee until the following Jan 01 at the very soonest.

This applies to anyone who has ever been a referee at any time in the past. If a referee falls into this category, they are allowed to recertify for the next year in the period between July 01 and Dec 31 but will not be given a badge and not allowed to referee until the following Jan 01.

If you are certified for 2016, you have until June 2017 to recertify for 2017.

This restriction is based on current USSF policy and USSF provide liability insurance.

Fifth Annual Referee Development Academy (RDA)

The fifth annual RDA will be held on July 29-31, 2016 in Ellensburg, WA at Central Washington University. This clinic is for all referees interested in personal development and upgrade.

There are 3 clinics associated with the RDA:

  • The main clinic (08-0716-RDA-Recert($$$)-HR78E-0033 or 08-0716-No Recert($25)-0034) which is open to anyone
  • The special invitation only clinic (08-0716-RDA-Invite-0036) which is on Thursday and Friday. Inclusion in this event is determined by the SRC
  • An Grade 8 to 7 Upgrade clinic (08-0716-RDA-HU7-0032) which starts at noon on Friday

This year you may use the RDA as a 2017 recertification clinic, however, you must pay your 2017 registration fee when you sign up. If you do pay your 2017 registration fee, the SRC will waive the $25 RDA fee. If you don't want to pay your 2017 registration fee now, you may sign up for the RDA as "Supplelmental Training". You will be charged $25 to attend the RDA if you use this choice.

If you are having problems signing up for the RDA, use the "2016 RDA - How to Register" document to help.

Certification, Re-Certification,
& Upgrade Requirements

The US Soccer Referee Program has recently released new Certification, Re-Certification and Upgrade requirements for all Referee Grades. After much study, communications with the US Soccer Referee Program office and other State Referee Committees, the Washington State Referee Committee has adopted the new requirements effective immediately for the 2014 Registration Year. These new requirements, and any variations from the Referee Program requirements, are detailed under the Administration option of the Main Menu above. Click Certification Requirements (updated 09-02-2016) for a direct link to the page.

This video, Referee Grade Overview, focuses on explaining the different referee grades that U.S. Soccer's program has to offer and the pathway a referee may take to advance to working more competitive games.

In addition, the SRC will often review a referee's "Portfolio" when making decision on who is offered SRC sponsored training & events, assignments and travel. See this document for more information: SRC Portfolio Guidelines
