SRC Referee Development and High-Potential ProgramsThe 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:
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.
Remember, this is NOT optional if you wish to referee adult games. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Should you think something needs added/changed contact our State Youth Referee Administrator,
Chad Landis at his email address firstname.lastname@example.org
GameOfficials Online Registration and Learning Center
In cooperation with SDSSA & SDASA, the SD SRC GameOfficials Online Referee Registration & Learning Center is officially up & running practice testing the week of April 1, 2014. GameOfficials access codes will be provided to affiliated associations when the site is ready for utilization.
Our current FY 2014 Referee registration & training cycle is approximately one-half completed; we will not be switching systems mid-season. The new registration & learning system is projected to be completed & ready for registration/online courses long before US Soccer begins the next cycle on August 1, 2014. Keep checking back for program updates.
