Soccer Referees


Come join us as over 1,000 soccer referees did last year. Referees from 10 countries and over 30 states came to participate at America’s greatest soccer facility. There are numerous tournaments and leagues open to your participation. The advantage of refereeing at the National Sports Center is that all games are played in one location. The following is a brief summary of the tournaments and leagues available to work.

The National Sports Center is excited to announce the change to a new referee assigning program gameofficials.net! This move will be beneficial to both referees and assignors for the upcoming season. This new program will be used to assign all of our major tournaments and leagues for the 2012 soccer season. Please make sure that you check your availability as nothing transferred over from the other tournament sign-up page.
