How To Become A U.S.S.F. Referee

Please visit Maryland Soccer's Referee Page and navigate to locate the information you require.

2018-2019 Certification

Once you have completed the certification course and passed the test, email Wil D'Addario  if you are interested in being a referee for the North Carroll Soccer Club.

You must be a 2018 or 2019 certified USSF referees for consideration for game assignments. It also enables you to referee in tournaments held by various organizations throughout the year. Do not let your certification expire!

Re-certification for the 2019 is held at the Senior Center in Hampstead on Mondays of each month. You must attend 2 two-hour training sessions and pass the test in order to re-certify. Also, a reminder to regular re-certification referees: the USSF has extended the 50 question test to 100 questions, so I would recommend looking over your material before attending. You must get a 75% to pass!

Additional Things you need to know:

  • Referees are paid to do games.
  • You must purchase your own referee uniform(s) and equipment. Depending on the quality of equipment that you purchase and if you elect to buy Cold Weather gear you will spend between $75 and $150. You will need two jerseys (Gold & Black), black shorts, referee socks, red and yellow cards, Fox 40 whistle(s), and a count down watch.
  • I would recommend that you be at least 13 years. Adult referees are always welcome.
  • You also must attend an annual 5 hour re-certification class to maintain your certification and pass a refresher test. The fee to test is now $45.00.
  • If you have further questions you can e-mail me at or feel free to approach me during the day while I am around the fields.
  • 2018 MANDATORY MEETING: SUNDAY AUGUST 19th from 5:15-6:00pm at North Carroll Middle School (first field on the right).
  • Followed by On Field Training with Bob Reath.
