How to Become A New Referee
The New Referee Course consists of online modules – that is part of the US Soccer Learning Center system, and the last module will be a field session. All Learning Center modules SHOULD be completed before the Field Session!All interested participants aged 18 and older will need to complete the background check BEFORE you can register for this course. Be advised that background checks normally take 7-10 business days to complete.The price for this course is $80, $20 goes to US Soccer, $60 goes to the Rhode Island Referee Committee. if for any reason a participant decides to withdraw from the course after paying for the registration, RISRC will only be able to refund $40.As far as referee unform goes, you could purchase your referee uniform from Official Sports (officialsports.com). Also, you can get your unform from Capelli (when you buy from the RISRC' store, a percentage will go back to our referee program / https://teams.capellisport.com/REFRORU). You do not need your uniform for the Field Session. If you wish to buy a second referee shirt (as an alternate) we suggest Black would be the best choice. Please let us know if you have any questions..
