CNRA Announces New 2018 Grade 5 Standard


State Referee Administrator Said Ravanfar and CNRA Director of Referee Development Matthew Buckman announced the new Grade 5 Referee Standard for 2018 and beyond. The new standard reflects the higher demands of the matches that Grade 5 Referees will be expected to officiate in 2018 in Cal North, and aligns with the U.S. Soccer Federation’s expectation that Grade 5 Referees are imminently eligible for selection as a National Referee.

Additionally, the policy for requesting an assessment from a National Referee Coach (formerly National Assessor) has been revised to reflect the modifications to the Referee Academy.

Any questions regarding the new Grade 5 Referee Standard or National Referee Coach Policy should be directed to Matthew Buckman, Director of Referee Development.
