Grade 8 Soccer Referee Clinic

So you can referee or assistant referee on all youth games and amateur adult games. Grade 9 referees (youth only referees) may attend to upgrade to a grade 8 referee so they can referee or assistant referee amateur adult games.

This is nominally a 16-hour clinic, including testing. Some of that time will be spent before the scheduled class time doing online training. Go to http://www.ussoccer.com/Referees/Resource-Center/Online-Training/Grade-8-Referee-Course.aspx . Complete online training for ALL Laws. Quiz questions online will be similar to questions on the final test! 

Students should arrive on time and plan on attending the entire clinic. Please bring your own lunch/drinks/snacks for the day. Be prepared to go outside onto a soccer field as part of the training. Bring pencils, paper, watch and whistle.


There is no minimum age, but at least age14 is recommended. No prior referee experience is necessary, and it is not necessary to have previously taken the Grade 9 clinic.

Total fees: $45. grade 9 to grade 8 upgrade fees are $45. Fees include registration with US Soccer for 2014-2015. Annual recertification is required. paying online is preferred. Checks should be made out to 'NMSRA'. Note, the Taos and Santa Fe Soccer leagues are covering the instructor expense.

Minimum class size is 12 students. The class may be canceled if the minimum class size is not met. Maximum class size is 40.

Lead Instructor:  Kim Thomas, kksbthomas@earthlink.net
