Montana Soccer Referee Program
Welcome MONTANA REFEREES!
The Montana Soccer Referee Committee would like to welcome you to the home for U.S. Soccer Federation Referees in the State of Montana. The Montana Soccer Referee Program exists to help recruit, instruct, certify, assign, assess, mentor, improve and retain proficient soccer referees for all U.S. Soccer sanctioned Youth and Adult matches in the state. We strive for the good of the game to maintain the highest standards of officiating, promote the game of soccer, and maintain the spirit of fair play among all participants.
ifab circular 26 released - law 11 - offside
Following a number of high-profile situations and based on the expectation that a player who is clearly in an offside position should not become ‘onside’ on all occasions when an opponent moves and touches the ball, The IFAB and FIFA, after discussions with football stakeholders, have clarified the guidelines for distinguishing between ‘deliberate play’ and ‘deflection’.

New Registration Platform - OMS
The SRC is happy to announce that we have partnered with Officials Management Systems (OMS) for the 2023 registration year. OMS doesn't fully replace the Learning Center, there will be a couple courses that must still be taken there each year, but we'll be able to supplement the content in the Learning Center with more tailored information for our Montana Referees. Links to OMS will be added shortly and emails will be distributed on how to register and get set up.
