Benicia Arsenal FC
Greetings Future Soccer Referees!
Thank you for your interest in becoming a USSF Certified Soccer Referee with Benicia Arsenal FC!
A large roster of dedicated local referees, especially adults, is essential to every club’s success. Local adult referees are critically important for many reasons, especially because they can officiate older games that teenagers cannot due to their age. If you are an adult and plan to be affiliated with the Club for several years—you may have young children—we would LOVE to have you get certified and join our referee program! Adults are doubly rewarded getting paid for matches officiated at U9 and older while simultaneously earning volunteer hours.
Benicia Arsenal FC regularly hosts USSF Grade 8 Entry Level Referee Courses. To successfully complete the course, you must review online materials, attend all classroom and field sessions (make ups not available) and pass an open book, online test.
Course participants should be 14 years old, though exceptions may be made for dedicated 13 year olds with several years of competitive playing experience. You do NOT need to be affiliated with the host club to attend the course.
All course participants must:
1) Create an account on CNRA.GameOfficials.net
2) Register for the course and pay the CNRA registration fee online
3) Attend ALL course classroom and field sessions—No Makeups!
4) Pass the online final test with 80% accuracy (5 attempts)
When you have completed the course and passed the test, you will earn a USSF Grade 8 certification and be eligible to officiate starting immediately. Badges will be sent by CNRA in the mail in the weeks to follow, so please be patient for their arrival. You do NOT need a badge to officiate.
