U.S. Soccer Interval Test Administration
The referee must be at the next station before time is expired or
the referee fails the fitness test.
A lap is two (2) 150 meter runs and two (2) 50 meter recovery walks
as follows: The test starts with the
referee covering 150 meters in the prescribed time. This is then
followed by walking 50 meters in the
prescribed time. This is then repeated for one (1) lap.
Sprint Test Administration
6 x 40 meter sprint
followed by maximum
one and a half minute (1:30) recovery
period after each sprint
(while walking back to the start).
Dynamic start with
the front foot on a line that is 1.5
meters away from
the electronic timing gates at
the starting position.
If a referee falls
or trips, he is given another
trial (one trial
= 1 x 40 meters).
If a referee or assistant referee fails one
(1) trial out of the six (6), then he is given
one (1) more trial (and
one only) immediately after the sixth trial. If he fails
two (2) trials, the match official has
failed the test.
If it is not possible to record the times electronically, one
observer signals the moment the referee runs through
the first gate using an accurate flag signal. The second observer is
positioned in line with the second
gate and stops the chronometer when the referee runs through it.
The Sprint Test will be the first test administered, followed by the
