Benefits of Becoming a Referee

Rapids-Referee

Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club offers opportunities for interested members to become certified referees.

In Colorado, the Referee Course consists of two parts: an online module and field session.  Future referees must complete both sections in order to successfully pass the course and be registered with U.S. Soccer. The purpose of this program is to prepare officials for the recreational and small-sided youth game.
