How to Become a Soccer Referee in LA

Print Email
 
The game of soccer continues to grow in Louisiana. Unfortunately, the corps of committed, knowledgeable and well-trained referees is not keeping pace. Quality referees are an essential part of player development. Becoming a referee is also an opportunity to earn a decent wage and all while maintaining a healthy lifestyle and making life-long friends. 
 
Referees and the laws of the game are administered through FIFA and US Soccer. Louisiana Soccer Association (LSA) appoints a State Referee Committee (SRC) to administer referee recruitment, education, registration and assignment across the state, but both LSA and its SRC simply act as the local arm of US Soccer.
