Become a certified USSF referee
Players, Players Friends, Parents, Coaches,
We need to continue to certify new USSF referees in order to be able to assign the full complement of referees for all the games. If any of you are interested helping, consider registering for the course. If you have any questions call me at 860-561-0885.
The entry level referee program is opened for 2018 certification in mid-July but the registration has been very slow. To become a referee the candidate must be 13 by December 31, 2017. The course is called the grade 8 entry level referee program, which refers to referee grade, not school grade. The criteria is solely based on birthdate. The program consists of online training, an online test and once completed the link to register for the required one day, 5 hour in person course will be activated.. Registration for the entry level program will be open through August 31st and the in person sessions will run through September 10th. The schedule of the in person courses can be found on the event calendar on the left hand side of our homepage. Once registered the program must be completed within this time frame to be able to officiate this fall, if not completed the program can be completed when we open again this winter. The cost of the program is $93.95 and the detailed instructions can be found on the homepage of www.ctreferee.net.
