Registration for NEW Officials is CLOSED until June 25
Updated Apr 19, 2018

Due to more paid registrations in the system than seats remaining in this spring's classes, NEW referee registration is now closed. People who have already paid their accounts will still be able to work towards new referee certification even after this deadline. New referee registration will open again on Monday, June 25, 2018 so that officials may work towards certification for the fall 2018 season.

We wish to emphasize that a paid registration does NOT guarantee a spring seat. If you fail to get to a class this spring, you MUST finish your classwork at one of our five summer clinics or you will forfeit your fees for 2018.

We strongly urge anybody who has paid their account to quickly finish their online work and reserve a seat in one of the remaining clinics for this spring, if you want to work games this summer.

***Please note this deadline does NOT apply to returning (i.e., previously certified) referees. If you have certified in the last four years, registration will remain open and work can be completed online through June 18, 2018.

MYSA & TCSL Summer Small-Sided Rules
Updated Mar 28, 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.
