Administered by a certified, experienced, and professional staff of indoor soccer referees, USIndoor's Referee Program is the only Program in the world that offers the specialized education and training necessary for indoor soccer referees to receive a nationally recognized credential for local youth and amateur, regional and national tournament, and professional competition.

First-time referee Certification is $60 and re-certification fees start at $45.  Upgrades may be annually requested, subject to USIndoor's official guidelines and each local instructor.  Badge candidates must attend live clinics conducted by a USIndoor instructor or, in rare instances and in regions without an instructor, home study may be available by written request for the Referee badge, only.  See the chart below for annual Re-Certification requirements.
