The Registered Officials Lists shown above provides a listing of all currently registered referees. To officiate youth matches, you must show up as "Approved" in the Risk Management Status column of the list. There has been a change to listing requirements.
For 2015 and future years, you MUST be Risk Managed Approved and have uploaded a picture to your referee profile to be approved as certified and listed above.
USSF ID cards are NOT a requirement to obtain game assignments as it will take several months to receive the card.
With the new online system, the registration process to receive the USSF ID card has changed. The process is as follows:
1) Cal South will process your registration This can take up to 2 weeks from the date of your clinic or online re-certification modules.
2) Cal South will then export a bi-monthly (every other month) report that will be sent to U.S. Soccer for completion and mailing of your ID card.
- U.S Soccer can take a up to a month after recieiving Cal Souths upload to enter referee bulks into their system
- Once they enter a referee into their system, U.S. Soccer's time frame for mailing the ID card is approximately 2 months.
3) In conclusion, your USSF ID card may take months to receive.The identification card or number is not a requirement for obtaining games and getting out on the field.
