Become A Referee
HOW TO BECOME A REFEREE
Becoming a referee takes just a few steps - Register for a training class, complete the online coursework, attend the classroom session, buy a uniform, and work your first game.
A new referee must complete the required online coursework, pass the online Grade 8 Entry Level test by scoring a minimum of 75%, as well as attend a 7 hour Entry Level Training classroom session. The candidate is then registered as a Grade 8 Referee and given their USSF badge. The clinics are scheduled by leagues, clubs, and other groups.
To find out when and where the next referee courses are being held, review the list of First Year Entry Level Training Classes. Select the training class that fits your schedule, register, and you are on your way! If you have any questions, please contact the District Referee Administrator for your area.
Generally, about 35-40 clinics are held between November and March throughout the state of Indiana. Learn more
