Become a Referee

Spring 2024 Referee Grassroots Training Class

Interested in becoming a Referee?

SASC players (also parents and coaches) are welcome to participate in an upcoming Grassroots Entry Level Referee training class.

For the players, this is a great opportunity for a well paying job where they can not only get valuable job experience (resumes, job reference, etc) but also manage/organize a work schedule. As a bonus, they'll hopefully understand the game in a different way and for sure develop greater respect for the referees that officiate the games they are playing in.

Here are the steps if interested:
  • Follow the instructions at to create an account with US Soccer Learning Center
    • The student must have turned 13 years old before registering for the class
    • For those 18 years or older, you'll also need to complete a SafeSport / Background check. It can take 5-10 days to clear a background check

  • Once account registration is complete, sign up for an online course and its associated field clinic
    • Cost is $75.00 for youth (adults requiring background check are $30 more). This includes the USSF 2024 license (good till Dec 2024)

  • The student must finish all modules (approximately 7-8 hours) and pass the online test before attending their field clinic

  • The next available field clinic details are as follows:
    • Date: Sunday, March 3, 2024, 9:00am - 12:00pm (arrive 15 min early)
    • Location: Hillview Community Center (Los Altos), 97 Hillview Ave, Los Altos, CA 94022
    • Please come in athletic attire and bring water, whistle & AR flags if possible
Please contact if you have any questions.
