Louisiana Referee Program
The Louisiana Referee Development Program offers an opportunity for every referee, instructor, assessor and assignor candidate to receive instruction and training as well as the opportunity for growth and development.
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. The Referee program will continue to expand support of local associations in an effort to improve the skills and knowledge base of players, coaches, referees, instructors, assessors and assignors.
