Being a referee is a fairly simple process - you take a test, you pass the test, you buy a uniform and you do your first game. Sounds easy. But of course nothing is that easy but we can help you get started. Here is what's involved in becoming a referee:
The Basic Referee Clinic
Find out where a clinic is to be held in your area. You can call the North Texas State Office and ask for Kathy, the referee administrator, or look on the North Texas web page. Clinics will be listed for your area and surrounding areas. Once you find one that is convenient to you, call the person listed as the contact. Now that you have the first step out of the way things get better.
You will be attending a 16 1/2 hour course to become a referee but don't worry since you don't have to do it all at one time. Normally clinics are spread out over the course of 3-6 days depending on availability. Each class is called a session and you will have sessions A-F and usually a different instructor for each session but not always. These instructors will cover everything in the Laws of the Game plus some. At the end of the sessions you will take a test and make a score of 75 or better in order to register with register or do games. Take USSF. If you score less than 75 all is not lost. You can retake the test at a later date but until you pass the test you cannot register or do games. Take the time to study before test date and take good notes during the classes.
