Advanced Level USSF Referee Course (Grade 8)


The USSF Entry Level Grade 8 Referee Course is to become an Center/Assistant Referee. Grade 8 is the level of the referee, not a school grade. No experience necessary and you do not have to start off taking the Grade 9 Course. The minimum age to referee is 14.

This class is recommended for older teenagers and adults.

Assistant Referees earn $25-$40 and Center Referees earn $40-$80 per game depending on the duration & level of the game. All Grade 8 referees also do AR assignments.

The cost of the course is $205, which includes the uniform.

A Mandatory Parent’s meeting for the participants 18 years and younger is approximately 60 minutes to go over the program and for you to ask questions.

There is a written exam at the end of the course. Passing score is 80% or better. If you do not pass, you have 1 year to retake future courses or just retake the exam at no charge.
