Are you a referee looking for opportunities?
ASA hires referees for a variety of programs, ranging from competitive to introductory. We hire referees for our competitive youth programs and tournaments on a rolling basis and are always looking for qualified candidates. We also hire high school students ages 13+ to referee in our Rec League and Junior Academy programs. These referees must complete an in-house training but do not need to be certified by USSF.
Certified referee? Looking for more info on how to become a referee? Reach out to our referee assignors for more info and to be added to their distribution lists.
Soccer Referee Classes
Several times a year ASA hosts referee certification courses. Information about upcoming courses hosted in Alexandria will be posted here.
1) Register with Officials Management System (OMS). OMS can be accessed at https://mdcvasrp.omgtsys.com/. Once there click on “New Member Registration” and register for the clinic – “Referee – Grassroots Entry – First Step – Online Lessons (North 57-0321EGRHOL).” Pay the $80 registration fee.
2) Once you have registered, please log back on to OMS. Click on “Member Sign In” and sign in. Once at your home page scroll down to the grey “online lessons” button and click on it. You will complete 6-7 lessons depending on your age (those under 18 will not have to do SafeSport). Lessons are hosted on two platforms – OMS and USSF’s Digital Learning Center (DLC). It takes up to 48 hours for information to sync between the two platforms. As you complete lessons on the DLC please wait for it to update – if you leave the last few pages early your progress will not be saved.
3) AFTER you have completed the online modules – your online lessons button will turn green – you may request a transfer into the field clinic of your choice by contacting Diane Florkowski ([email protected]). Field sessions are currently scheduled in 4 hour blocs at Minnie Howard School in Alexandria. Enrollment options now include 12/12, 1/16, and 1/22.
