Testing

Referees who are registered with the United States Soccer Federation are required to take the referee exam appropriate for their level and receive a passing score. The referee exams are online and can be accessed once you log in to this website. If you do not have a userid or password, please contact the State Director of Instruction (SDI). You have up to three (3) tries to pass the test. If a passing score is not obtained, you will be required to attend a special training class before your registration will be processed.

State Referee Associations are also empowered by U.S. Soccer to establish fitness, assessment and training standards outside the parameters of grade. Although independent of grade, these standards should be advanced when compared to the existing grade requirements. These advanced standards should be specific to the needs of local competitions or specific to participation in state level development programs.

If fitness standards are required for specific state level competitions, they should be conducted in accordance with the FIFA Sprint and Interval Tests. U.S. Soccer recommends that State Referee Associations use the established State Referee standards but the required time intervals can be adjusted if needed.

All Nevada Grade 6 Referees and Grade 7 Referees wishing to upgrade are required to take and pass a fitness test.

Instructors, Assessors and Assignors are required to take the current year exam and receive a passing score. You have up to three (3) tries to pass the test. If a passing score is not obtained, you will be required to attend a special training class before your registration will be processed.
