Become a Referee!

GA Soccer offers a series of R9 level (introductory for 14 year-olds and younger) and R8 (as an upgrade from R9 or as an entry course for 15-years-olds and older) classes on a seasonal basis for individuals interested in becoming referees or for current referees looking to improve their skills.

PLEASE NOTE THAT INDIVIDUALS ARE FREE TO ATTEND ANY CLASS OFFERED BY ANY CLUB AND CAN THEN CHOOSE ANY SSA LOCATION TO REFEREE AT ONCE THEY ARE CERTIFIED, SO CANDIDATES FROM ANY SSA LOCATION ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THESE CLASSES.

R8 - http://gareferees.com/index.cfm?p=classSearch&classTypeID=597

Entry Level (R9) Course:


The students are taught all of the Laws of the Game at a level appropriate for beginning referees officiating youth soccer at younger age groups. There is an online study session and a seven-hour Saturday session in the classroom and on the field, and a final exam. 

A Referee Grade 9 is a Recreational Referee. Once certified, you will be able to be a Center Referee for Recreational Games only, U-12 and younger. You will be able to run lines (Assistant Referee) for all levels (including Academy and Select), U-14 and younger.


Cost
The total cost is $90, which breaks out as $50 for the class and $40 for registration with the United States Soccer Federation.


Recertification Courses:

SSA is also offering upgrade courses for current R9 referees to the R8 level:

The Bridge Course has three parts. The first is online learning, which is a review of the Laws of the Game. The second is an online test, which you can take with or without a copy of the LOTG. It is almost entirely on the restarts -- what is the restart after play is stopped and when is the ball in play at each restart. The third session is a full day in the classroom and on the field and will concentrate on the methods by which you apply the LOTG. It is followed by a final exam.
