US Soccer Assessments are a formal observation and recording of a referee’s performance in a match. Assessors are trained professionals with game experience in a variety of levels during their career. They can help a referee advance in grade, maintain their current level, and provide course corrections in the development of an official’s understanding of the Laws of the Game. Assessors provide a game debriefing to review their observations and submit official written feedback that includes a grade of a Referee’s performance
When a referee is ready to upgrade as a State Referee (Grade 6) or maintain State or National Referee status, they must pass a number of assessments based on their grade level.
To help State Referees, CNRA has organized assessments through a State Assessment Coordinator. Requests are managed by this Coordinator who assigns Assessors and handles the formal process of recording results for CNRA and US Soccer. For National Referees/Candidates, assessments are handled by a National Assessor Coordinator. Requests are managed by this Coordinator who assigns Assessors and handles the formal process of recording results for CNRA and US Soccer
The process has been detailed with instructions for online assessment requests through CNRA GameOfficials. We invite you to participate and get your assessments scheduled in a timely manner.
