Welcome to the Official Internet Web Site of the Rappahannock Soccer Referees Association. Our goal is to provide referees with every possible opportunity for improvement and advancement by making available to them accurate, up-to-date information, regardless of their association membership or affiliation.
Your comments and suggestions are appreciated and should be directed to the Web Site Editor.
USSF Training - NEW!
All USSF referees must re-certify for 2014 (except new referees who just took the new referee class). If you haven't recertified yet, your options are now much more limited. Check this site and the State Referee Website for the most up to date schedules.
Please go to the State Referee page and follow the instructions to register for 2014. Then you will be able to select your clinic (after 24-hour wait).
If you are a Grade 7 or above, including State Emeritus grades, there are very few remaining recertification clinics.
