The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Congratulations on successfully completing the requirements to become a grassroots referee. My name is Lou Agocs and I'm your State Director of Assignment (SDA). You can contact me any time with questions, via email.
In order to be assigned to referee soccer matches in Iowa, you must get in contact with a U.S. Soccer certified Referee Assignor. You should have been given a list of local assignors during the Grassroots Referee course.
As a new soccer official, you should be prepared to work mainly as an Assistant Referee or as a Referee on the younger age groups until the assignor is able to identify your abilities to handle more difficult games.
The Game Hierarchy table is your guide to the levels and priorities of games to which a referee can be assigned. It is important that you share your goals with each of your assignors so that they can work together with you to provide assignments that will enhance your career path. You should then work the highest level of game that you can.
It is recommended that you work for an assignor nearby so that he/she can help you to improve your refereeing abilities.
