REMIND ME AGAIN ABOUT THE ADMIN REQUIREMENTS?


There are multiple systems to navigate, but three are the most important:


  • CNRA (via GameOfficials.net):
    Prospective Referees must
    register with CNRA in order to get trained.
    Returning Referees must
    renew your registration with CNRA in order to keep your certification current.

  • PENSRA (pensra.org)
    This site requires a separate registration as well. It is where you will sign up for all SF Youth Soccer matches (and other league games as well - your certification makes you eligible to ref games in and out of San Francisco as well). Report Game scores here to get paid.
