2020 Registration is Now Open
Updated Oct 6, 2019

The 2020 US Soccer Referee Registration season is now open in Minnesota. Returning and new officials can log on and pay their 2020 fees.

Due to some delays created by US Soccer's new registration policies, there has been some delay in implementation of the full certification process. At this time referees will find some steps and material available to them when they log in, while other aspects remain under construction. Full access to all steps should be available by November 1. We ask for patience as we try to catch up during what is alwaysa hectic time of year.

SITE UPDATE 10/6/19: All online recert courses and online testing are now live for re-certifying referees. The entry-level online courses hosted on the MNSRC site are still in production at this time.

MNSRC Releases Laws of the Game Changes Video Series
Updated Oct 10, 2019

The Minnesota State Referee Committee is pleased to release a three-part YouTube series on the 2019-20 Changes to the Laws of the Game. These videos summarize IFAB's changes to the Laws of the Game, released on June 1, 2019.

Part 1: General Changes to the Laws of the Game
Part 2: Management of Misconduct by Team Officials
Part 3: Updates to the Handling Clause in Law 12

Please note these changes are NOT IN EFFECT for fall competitions in Minnesota (i.e., MYSA, TCSL, or MSA-sanctioned play) with the exception of USSF Developmental Academy matches. These changes should be applied to any Minnesota competition whose season STARTS after November 1, 2019.

These presentations are available to all parties and do not require referee registration to access. However, watching these presentations on YouTube will not count for credit towards US Soccer Referee certification. Returning officials will need to watch the presentations after paying their 2020 registration fees on our Online Materials page in order to obtain needed credit towards certification.

Use the 2018-19 Laws for Fall MYSA/TCSL Play!!!
Updated Sep 13, 2019

It would seem there is a lot of unnecessary confusion in Minnesota over the potential application of the 2019-20 Laws of the Game to fall MYSA and TCSL play.

Historically, both organizations have maintained the prior year Laws for fall play to avoid confusion. To further avoid confusion, the SRC has never posted Law Change information until those seasons are winding down or near completion.

If you officiate fall MYSA or TCSL matches, you should apply only the Laws covered in training you have received through the MNSRC website and classrooms. DO NOT USE THE 2019-20 LAWS IN THESE COMPETITIONS!

The only competition in Minnesota using the 2019-20 Laws currently is the US Soccer Developmental Academy. Only a select few officials are working these games and have been advised of the Law Changes. If you are not working USSF DA matches, you should not use the 2019-20 Laws in Minnesota until winter leagues start after November 1.
