Become a Referee


On behalf of the State Referee Committee, thank you for your interest in becoming a certified US Soccer Federation referee! Without your help, soccer in Montana would not exist and we're sure you'll enjoy the experience, comradery, challenges, and rewards that refereeing can provide.

The US Soccer Referee Federation Grassroots Referee Course is specific to the competitive youth and adult game. This is an entry-level course for new referees.

The Grassroots course is $50 and you must be 13 years old at the time of registration. Those 18 and over must be able to pass a background check and complete Safesport training.

New courses are typically held in the early spring and early fall.

If you would like to host a new referee course in your area, fill out this Request to Host a Beginner Grassroots Referee Course form.

Watch this video for a tutorial on the new referee registration.
