After the Field Session – What’s Next?

Congratulations on recently completing the US Soccer Grassroots referee course.  We hope you enjoyed the experience and we welcome your feedback on our new process.

In the meantime, it’s time to get you out on the pitch!

You have been registered with US Soccer and now have a 16 digit USSF ID number.  You can locate this number when you log into your account at www.epsarc.org > Referee Log in.

Your new 2021 badge will be mailed within the next few days to the address on file.

Once you have your uniform you can start accepting games.  Contact assignors in your area (www.epsarc.org under About Us), contact your local clubs, and review upcoming tournaments at www.epysa.org.

You are an Independent Contractor, which means you can work where and when you want.  You must solicit games by reaching out to the Assignors.  See what information they need from you, and what method they use to assign games (Game Officials, phone calls, emails, etc.)

  • Remember the 3-Ps when working with assignors:  Patience, Persistence and Pleasantness.

Every year, every referee must recertify, so look for information next summer on this process for 2022.

Should you have any questions contact us at epsarcoffice@gmail.com and welcome to the world of officiating!
