SRC Referee Development and High-Potential Programs

The SD SRC has developed several programs to identify and assist referees to improve and advance.  SRC assistance includes advanced training, mentors, assessments, and reimbursement of travel/training expenses to approved events. 

Officials who feel they wish to utilize these resources, or who wish to be considered for inclusion in advanced programs, are encouraged to contact any of the SRC administrative members. 

Some of the upcoming tournaments our High-Potential referees may attend include the following:
  • ECNL San Diego | San Diego, CA | Sat., April 12-14 | U15-U18* 
  • Dallas Cup | Dallas, TX | April 13 - 20 | U13+ |

SD Adult League Referee Insurance Requirement (Link is Now ACTIVE)

If you are a SD Referee who referees adult soccer games, you must register each year through USASA before you can referee games.  Your 2013-2014 registration expired April 1, 2014 and you MUST re-register if you wish to officiate any adult games in 2014.  

This registration (and $5 fee) covers your annual membership, and most importantly, insurance coverage for you while refereeing adult games.  This is not optional. 

  1. Go to the SDASA site, http://www.sdadultsoccer.com/
  2. In the left hand column select "2014-15 REFEREE Yearly Membership Registration"
  3. In the center column, click  "REGISTER HERE FOR 2014-15 REFEREE MEMBERSHIP"
  4. Follow the instructions. 
This will require payment of the $5 fee electronically by credit card. If you are unable to pay by credit card you need to make arrangements to come to the Sioux Falls Coed Leagues Office to complete this before you may referee adult league games this season. 

Remember, this is NOT optional if you wish to referee adult games.  Don't say we didn't warn you.
