Every year the demand for soccer referees grows. While it's great to bolster our numbers with more youth referees, as more and more kids play deeper into their high school and college years, and then go on to play amateur soccer, the need for adult referees is greater than ever.
The minimum age to become a referee is 13 years. This is set by the United States Soccer Federation and cannot be waived or modified by the State Referee Committee or any club or league. The US Soccer learning center will not allow anyone under the age of 13 to create a referee profile.
