2022 USSF REFEREE GRADES

 

US Soccer has changed the grades to the following - 

GRASSROOTS REFEREE - ALL grade 7 and 8 referees are now under the category of grassroots referee. 

REGIONAL REFEREE - ALL grade 6 referees are now under the category of regional referee.

STATE/REGIONAL NATIONAL ASSISTANT REFEREE CANDIDATE -  All grade 5 referees are now under the category of National Assistant Referee Candidate.

STATE/REGIONAL NATIONAL REFEREE CANDIDATE-  All grade 5 referees are now under the category of National Referee Candidate.

For 2022 we will only be holding new referee classes under the Grassroots  designation. Basically everyone will be taking a grade 8 referee class going forward

 

The grade 9 referee class is no longer available

All re certifications will be as a grassroots referee.  If you are a grade 9 referee you will need to take the second day of the grassroots (grade 8) class to finish your grassroots designation.
