The Louisiana Referee Development Program

Print Email
 

The Louisiana Referee Development Program offers an opportunity for those interested in becoming a soccer referee to learn from and be mentored by the most experienced referees in Louisiana. The Program also provides every referee, instructor, assessor and assignor candidate with the opportunity to receive instruction and training. The Program is committed to teaching and developing the finest referees in the Region and to provide an environment in which their can each learn, grow and develop.

The Program is also committed to provide each LSA member organization and club with support in an effort to improve the skills and knowledge base of players, coaches, referees, instructors, assessors and assignors to increase and improve the pool of soccer referees across the state. 

Referees from Louisiana have opportunities to participate at major regional and national tournaments (Region III USYSA Championships, Region III President's Cup, Region III Amateur Tournament) and training programs (LA Referee Academy, State ODP and Region III ODP). Along with a strong presence at local tournaments throughout the state, both recreational and competitive, there are opportunities for the early identification of referees with potential to advance in grade and competence.
