Our Mission

The Colorado Referee Committee promotes and carries out the National Program for Referee Development for all affiliated soccer within Colorado. The Committee sets policies within the state within the confines of the governing documents of U.S. Soccer and the National Program for Referee Development.

Our job is to TRAIN, PROMOTE, AND RETAIN REFEREES as outlined by the National Program.


2016 New Grade 8 Classes Will Start in Late July

Grade 8 classes for new referees has begun. If you have lapsed in Grade or a previous Grade 9 referee and meet the minimum age of 12, you may sign up for any of the new posted classes. New classes are added when they are received. Please check the Clinic/Events tab for new classes.

If you have not registered for 2015 you may not officiate any games until you have recertified.
