The selection and certification process for National Referees will be overseen by Herb Silva, Director of Referee Identification and Training. In addition to meeting a set of minimum requirements for upgrade and recertification, officials will now be reviewed and approved by a selection committee that will assist with the highly selective process of determining the finite pool of National Referees and National Assistant Referees.
