Training & Tests

 

US Soccer's former Grade 9, 8, 7 and 6 Courses each had an online training component in Brainshark. The individual modules were a good source of review for the LOTGs and the points-of-emphasis for each Grade. English and Spanish language versions of these online courses can still be found at the US Soccer Resource Center. If you are interested in taking any of these modules, you will be prompted to enter your name, e-Mail address, and State Association – the fields identified with a red asterisk *.

US Soccer's former Grade-specific Tests are still available online in EasyTestMaker. If you want to take one of these tests and require an Access Code, send the State Director of Instruction (SDI) an e-Mail at RCWalaskaSDI@gmail.com. However, don't request the Access Code until you are ready to take the test – the codes expire. Each test has 50+ questions. You have 2 hours to complete the test. A passing score is 80%. If you would like to test your knowledge of the IFAB LOTG ahead of time, go to AReferee.com for a variety of practice tests and short quizzes.

PLEASE NOTE: US Soccer changed the referee designations on July 1, 2019. Referee Grades 9, 8, and 7 are grouped together and referred to as Grassroots Referees. State Referee Grades 6 and 5 are now designated Regional Referees.
