To become a referee in Illinois, you must first register online with the Illinois High School Association. The IHSA licenses referees and umpires in the following sports: basketball, soccer, gymnastics, football, hockey, water polo, track, lacrosse, volleyball, wrestling, baseball, softball, cheer and dance. The minimum age is 17-years-old.
How to Become a Licensed Official. The IHSA is looking for men and women who want to return something to their sport, their school, and their community by becoming licensed athletic officials. Candidates must be at least 17 years old, in good physical condition, and able to make decisions on their feet and stick to them.
You become a referee by attending and successfully completing a referee training course. U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) authorized two entry-level referee certifications: Recreational Referee Grade 9 and Referee Grade 8.
7. Receive Your Referee License, Certification, and Badge. You have now done everything you need to do to become a youth soccer referee. You have your U.S. Soccer First-Time Referee Grassroots license, and you have your soccer referee certification and badge from your local referee association.
You must be at least 12 years old to get a work permit to referee in Illinois. However, US Soccer now requires you to be 13 in order to get a USSF patch to referee competitive matches. The ISRC now requires you to be 13 before April 1.
