Become a SABR Referee
SABR trains our referees to be FIFA certified referees.
SABR Referee Certification classes will be scheduled by the end of July. We will be holding two Entry Level Certification classes (one in August and one in October).
Once you are a Certified FIFA referee, you will need to Recertify your knowledge each year. This year's Recertification will be entirely online. (See details below)
Dates will be announced on this website as soon as possible.
Entry Level Certification
You must be 13 years old or at least turning 13 during the SABR Soccer season to take the certification classes. The classes are administered by the Florida State Referees, Inc. (FSR) for Grade 8 entry-level referees and require that you attend 18 hours of training (6 online and 12 in the classroom) which includes a 100-question multiple choice question exam.
You must answer at least 75% of the questions correctly to pass, and if you do not pass you will need to retake the exam at another time when the Grade 8 Certification class is being held. You will also need to wait at 30 days before you can retake the test. The cost of the class is $100 paid directly to FSR at the start of the class or online through PayPal, which is only paid once, even if you don’t pass the first time.
The Entry Level Certification classes will be at:

Recertification classes are for existing Grade 8 Referees and will be entirely online this year. Similar to Certification classes above, you must log directly on www.fsr-inc.com to register. If you do not pass you will need to retake the test at another time. The cost of the class is $100 paid directly to FSR online through PayPal, which is only paid once, even if you don’t pass the first time.
2017 Referee Recertification season will soon open. We will announce the startup date on this website and by a mass e mail.
You must have the ability to view YouTube videos.
Please note that LeagueGM has an established procedure to guide you through your online registration and FSR have prepared additional guidance via a short video.

Don't delay your 2017 re-certification. The online Registration will be closed in November. You will need to complete all of the online videos along with the testing requirements by December to be eligible to officiate January 1, 2017.
There is only one course number that you need to register for. Registering in any other open Referee course, will create issues, and will delay your 2017 re- certification with US-Soccer.
BE SURE TO STUDY THE LAWS OF THE GAME AND BE SURE TO COMPLETE THE ONLINE MODULES, AS THIS IS NOT A REFRESHER COURSE. THE CLASS IS JUST AN UPDATE ON CHANGES TO SOME OF THE LAWS OF THE GAME AND THE TEST. SO BE PREPARED!
