How to register to become a Freedom Soccer Referee

To register you need to go to – Freedom Soccer Referees 2015 and register to be a referee.  There is no cost to register.

Make sure you click participant/player, not volunteer, and select player. If you do not register this way then you will not be able to referee.

When you register you will choose the referee clinics you will be attending.  All referees are required to attend clinics.

If you are a seasoned referee or a parent and would like to assist in training or other areas please also register as a volunteer as well.

You must be in at least 7th grade to referee.

If you have any questions regarding registration do not hesitate to contact Sue Chaney using the information below.

I look forward to seeing you all in August.
