Futsal Registration Opens October 1
Updated Sep 26, 2018

The site will open for futsal registration on October 1. Most Twin Cities futsal leagues will begin play in November, so if you are interested in officiating futsal and making some money over the winter, log into your account and register for futsal training after October 1. The course is only one hour long and is 100% online.

You must have been previously certified as a futsal official or must have been certified as USSF soccer referee in 2018 to access this training.

Download the 2018-19 Laws of the Game
Updated Sep 14, 2018

IFAB released its latest version of the Laws of the Game just prior to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Both the English and Spanish versions of the Laws can be downloaded directly from the MNSRC website here.

2018-19 Laws of the Game (English)
2018-19 Reglas du Juego (Español)

You can also order the Laws of the Game in book form from the US Soccer website when it becomes available. Cost will be approximately $6 plus S&H.

Site Closed Until November 1
Updated Sep 10, 2018

The account creation function will be closed from September 4 through October 31 for the short training offseason. If you are looking to become a USSF referee, the system will re-open on November 1.

If you were working through online entry class material but had not finished it, the crediting mechanism is now closed until November 1. You will not lose credit for your work if you were a summer registration (after July 1). You may start again after November 1... we will not be hosting any clinics until winter.

Returning officials who did not certify for 2018 may recertify starting November 1.

Looking for Games?
Updated Jun 13, 2018

If you have certified and are looking to be assignment games, please make sure you register for competitions through the Assignment page. You should email the listed assignor for the competition once you register to notify them of your interest. Not many assignors are using the SRC Assignment system, so you will need to get instructions from each assignor on how to sign up.

Full instructions on the competition registration system are available here:

MYSA & TCSL Small-Sided Rules
Updated Sep 3, 2018

US Soccer implemented a new set of rules for small-sided (i.e., less than 11 players per side) games in summer 2017, and the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association and Twin Cities Soccer Leagues (TCSL) were mandated to implement these rules in fall 2017. If you are going to be working any games for U12 and below this summer, please review these rules on MYSA's and TCSL's websites. The rules are nearly identical between the leagues, with the exception of build out line requirements at U11.

MNSRC will not be publishing any material on these rules to ensure MYSA's and TCSL's interpretations are consistent and not contradicted by inappropriate interpretations.
