How to become a USSF Referee

All United States Soccer Federation (USSF) affiliated member activities require that all referees be currently registered by the USSF. In order to register a referee must first be qualified. Normally initially this means successfully taking a USSF referee entry training course conducted by a Instructional program within one of the recognized state programs.

MRDP reserves the right to refuse registration in any capacity to anyone convicted of a felony, or with felony charges pending anywhere in the World.  While this policy in principle has been in force for many years, current risk management realities have now required this to be in writing and published.  The Missouri State Referee Committee has voted unanimously to re-affirm this policy as of January 4, 2021.
