HOW TO GET TRAINED


Requirement: Adults and Youth age 12 and up.

Reminder: Referee Grade Levels have no relation to school grade levels.


  1. Find a Referee Certification Course. Training dates are posted throughout the year on CNRA's (Cal North referee Association) website. If you have never been on CNRA's website, you must create a profile before you can register for a referee course.

    • ​​​​You'll want to remember your CNRA username and password because you will need to renew your registration online every year to get your current badge and pay your membership fee. Note: If you are a minor, you may need an adult to help with online payment using Visa or MasterCard.​


  1. Attend training dates. Please note, sometimes, due to enrollment numbers, and field issues, the instructor may communicate to you to modify meeting time/places. Get a jump start by doing some or all of the laws of the game online. Courses hosted by SFYS are listed below. Additional local training dates will be posted on the San Francisco Soccer Referee Association site.
