Advanced Referee Group

The Advanced Referee Program provides targeted instruction and training for match officials who seek to improve their knowledge and skill in officiating soccer while not making the extensive commitment required in the Elite Referee Program. This program is ideal for youth referees who are interested in exploring more advanced training, as well as adult referees who are regularly working top competitive youth matches and adult amateur matches and want to continue to develop their ability.

Participants in the Advanced Referee Program will meet for in-person training sessions on a quarterly basis in San Ramon, CA. There will be additional digital training opportunities throughout the year.

The next Advanced Referee Program training session is scheduled for Sunday, March 8 at 4:00 pm.

To participate in this program, please email Derek Francois at dfrancois@cnra.net.
