The Referee plays in integral part of the game, without the Referee the game can not be officiated. A Referee is an Indepenent contractor who has the ability to work at various clubs, tournaments and locations that require a certified official to promote good sportsmanship and integrity to the game. Referees are certified under the USSF and Florida State Referees Association. Referees must take and pass a re-certification course and score a 80% minimum each year so he / she are able to referee a game.
Referees are paid for their services so a Referee should be professional and understand the "Laws of the Game" as well as the "League / Tournament" rules of the organization for which they are working for.
Referees can be young, 13 / 14 years old, they are students of the game. Young Referees work with the Clubs Referee Assignor and or District Administrator to further develop and enhance his / her skills which would reflect on the field.
