Requesting a Referee Assessment

Assessments are a formal observation and recording of a referee’s performance in a match by an assessor certified with U.S. Soccer.  Assessors provide a debriefing to review their observations and submit official written feedback that includes a grade of a Referee’s performance

Assessment Policy

  1. You must already be assigned to the match you would like assessed
  2. Requests for assessment must be submitted seven (7) days in advance of the match.  Requests made within seven (7) days of the match will likely not be assessed.
  3. You must pay the assessment fee before an assessor is assigned
  4. Games that are not challenging enough to allow the Assessor to judge the abilities and knowledge of the Referee based on U.S. Soccer “Grade Related Performance Observations” guidelines (September, 2015) will still be assessed. However, the assessment will not count toward an Upgrade or Maintenance Assessment. Assessments that are completed upon a game that is deemed not challenging will not be refunded or given credit to a future assessment. NOTE: A sub-par performance on a non-challenging match may receive a “Need Further Evaluation” score (69 or below) in which case the Referee must make it up with an additional passing assessment.

Process

  1. Pay for your assessment quickly and securely via CNRA.gameofficials.net – ALL assessment requests MUST be paid in full.
  2. Fill out the Online Assessment Request Form via CNRA.gameofficials.net – the game will automatically be sent to the Assessor Coordinator for review and assignment.
  3. If CNRA is unable to identify an assessor for the match, an automatic credit will be maintained in the Referee’s account for later use toward any future assessment request.
  4. Should there be any changes to the details of the match or the referee crew, the referee MUST notify both the Assignor Coordinator and the assigned assessor as soon as possible. Any non-notification of such schedule changes that impacts the attendance of the assigned assessor, the assessment fee may not be re-credited if another assessment and assignor needs to be rescheduled.
  5. After the written assessment has been released to the Administration by the Assessor, and then reviewed and approved by theAssignor Coordinator, the Referee and ARs will receive individual notifications via email from the Assessor informing them that their Written Assessment is available to view online via CNRA.gameofficials.net.
