Registration and Online Topics Progress Now Closed Until November
Updated Oct 2, 2017

With the conclusion of our final 2017 entry clinic, the website is now closed for maintenance until November 1, 2017. No further progress may be made on new referee online training or re-certification until that date. Any summer registration payments (made after July 1) will be applied to the 2018 certification process.

Futsal Certification Now Open
Updated Aug 28, 2017

The SRC has opened futsal certification for all parties interested in officiating futsal in Minnesota this winter. A second Twin Cities league is forming and is in need of USSF-certified futsal officials, and a league is also forming in Rochester and will need officials.

The fee for certification is $45 for USSF Futsal registration plus the $20 Minnesota State Admin fee. The State Admin fee will also be applicable towards registration for 2018 outdoor certification.

Training consists of one hour of online material. If you certified as a futsal referee in fall 2016, training is reduced to about 25 minutes of recertification material.

MYSA Team Check-In Procedures for Summer 2017 Announced
Updated Apr 6, 2017

The Minnesota Youth Soccer Association has released its protocol for team administration during games for the coming 2017 season.

This week MYSA passed along its protocols to the SRC, and we are releasing the below presentation to guide officials on how to use the digital check-in procedures.

Please be advised that for all MYSA League play in 2017, the paper MYSA Roster form and laminated player passes no longer exist. All matches must be reported using the Affinty Sports system. Please refer to the presentation for detailed protocols and backups.
