Please contact a board member with any questions you have.
The Cal South State Referee Committee has changed the annual re-certification process for all Grade 8,7,6, and 5 Referees. All Candidates must register online and pay their US Soccer registration fee. Candidates will then be required to complete the US Soccer test modules according to your grade level online. Test results from the online session will be sent directly to Cal South from US Soccer on a weekly basis. For the complete information document please follow this link Calsouth pdf
Information regarding joining the Valley Referee Association should be directed to Mark Hager who will provide the information you need.
This is mandatory for Referees 18 and older if you wish to officiate any games at U19 and below. This must be completed. Check your status on the CalSouth website. If the column on the far right says "APPROVED" then your Life Scan is verified. If blank you will need to contact Sevada for further information.
If you need help registering or getting your Live Scan, please contact Alely Cruz for assistance.
For Referees wishing to upgrade. Contact Andy Reszczynski to schedule the required level games as early in the Coast Soccer Season as possible. Once you are scheduled you need to contact Lee Popejoy to schedule an assessor. At this time you will be required to pay the appropriate fees and your assessment will be set. You will need to be in contact with your assigned Assistants and verify that they are in possession of their current "Registration Card".
