Referee Volunteer Information


"The best seat in the house."

TL;DR: register and learn how to referee 
 here.  Reach out to [email protected] if you get stuck.

Make sure you register

For those who are planning to help in Fall 2023, register in Region 45’s SportsConnect (even if you won’t have a kid active in the program).  Instructions for that are here (reuse your existing stack account if you have one).

Special instructions if you…

… have no idea where to start!

Follow the instructions here.  Still stuck?  Email us.

… forgot everything

There’s a refresher session where we’ll remind everyone of everything they forgot.  It’s currently scheduled for Thursday, August 24 · 7:00 – 9:00pm PDT (Video call link:

… haven’t taken SafeSport in a while and it’s expired

There’s a new, lighter, refresh version of SafeSport!  The one you're looking for is "Refresher 1: Recognizing and Reporting Misconduct - U.S.".

… are moving up from U8 to U10+

You’ll need to upgrade your badge accordingly, from “Basic / U8” to “Regional”.  We use a “build out line” and offside, and it’s important to call them correctly.  Instructions on how to get your U10+ Regional badge can be found here.  Some field classes are already on the schedule.

… are looking to get more referee training to better officiate even higher level (U12+) matches

You can referee U12+ with the Regional badge, but to call these games fairly, getting a bit of additional training and mentorship doesn’t hurt.  Let us know and we’ll see what we can get scheduled.  There is also the Section 2 Golden Gate Camp running from July 21-23 where you can pick up most courses.

… have holes in your socks

Let us know what referee kit you need and we’ll try to get you hooked up.

… aren’t sure how to sign up for games.

The current plan is to use Arbiter again.  If you don’t have an Arbiter account, there’s a place where you can let us know that, too.

… know of a parent who would be a great referee (or aren’t sure why you received this email but want to help out)

Onboarding instructions are here.  If they get stuck, have them email [email protected].
