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 2014-2015 registration expired April 1, 2015 and you MUST re-register if you wish to officiate any adult games in 2015/16. 

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


  • Go to the SDASA site, http://www.sdadultsoccer.com/
  • In the left hand column select "2015-16 REFEREE Yearly Membership Registration"
  • In the center column, click "REGISTER HERE FOR 2016-15 REFEREE MEMBERSHIP"
  • 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.
