The state referee program under the auspices of US Soccer provides opportunities for individuals to achieve the highest possible level as a referee based desire, talent, and commitment.
New referees receive initial training and annual recertifications are provided for those already licensed. Opportunities are available for referees to demonstrate their skills with local game assignments at both the adult and youth level. Those advancing are able to referee at regional and national levels. Referee mentoring and coaching programs have seen our referees reach professional and FIFA levels.
There is always need for referees throughout the state. We encourage current and former players to become referees as they will have a great understanding of the game. Refereeing is a good opportunity to keep in shape and make a few bucks. Go to the Maryland Soccer Referee site for more information.
