2016 Referee Registration Now Open
Updated Oct 2, 2015
The Minnesota SRC has opened referee registration for the 2016 season! Returning officials can now log in, pay their fees, and commence with their recertification process. New officials may log in, pay fees and commence online training towards earning USSF certification as well.
For new referees, we have very few clinic opportunities posted at this time, but more will be forthcoming as clubs request them.
Please be advised, if you were certified for 2015, that certification is only effective through December 31, 2015. As of January 1, you will be unable to officiate USSF-affiliated matches until you complete certification.
MNSRC Introduces USSF Futsal Certification
Updated Oct 13, 2015
The Minneapolis-based Minnesota Futsal League affiliated with US Soccer this year, meaning for the first time, Minnesota has an affiliated futsal league that will require USSF-certified futsal officials.
The SRC has opted to require that all futsal referees also be certified for outdoor soccer. This allows us to keep the futsal training online excluisvely and limit it to covering the differences between the outdoor game and futsal.
If you certified as a referee in spring or summer 2015, you have the option of certifying for futsal in the next 2 months using our online program and then working games this winter. We are limiting this to the first 60 applicants to ensure that those who pay their futsal registration fees get the opportunity to work games. Please click on the 2016 Registration button on the left side of the screen when logged in to access this process.
