Certified Grassroots Assignors

U.S. Soccer Certified Grassroots Referee Assignor List

A list of certified Grassroots Assignors is provided on the Georgia Soccer Referee Assignor List. Contact the State Director of Assignment and the Referee Administrative Assistant for more information.

Note: there are tabs at the bottom of the Assignor list for Youth Clubs, Tournaments, Amateur Leagues, and the Certified Grassroots Assignor List.

From U.S. Soccer Policy Manual (Policy 531-8 - Assignment of Game Officials):

Section 1. Registration Required Prior to Assignment
No one shall officiate in any match under the sanction or jurisdiction (direct or indirect) of the Federation who is not registered with the Federation for the current year, unless that person is a visiting foreign referee who has been properly accredited by his or her national association and approved by the Federation Referee Staff.

Section 2. Unregistered Referee in Emergency
If, because of unforeseen circumstances, a currently registered referee is unable to officiate or does not appear for an assigned match, a person may then be designated at match time to act as referee in the emergency for that one match.

Section 3. Use of Club Linesmen
When neutral assistant referees are not assigned or fail to appear for a match as assigned, the referee may seek the assistance of club linespersons whose duties shall be as delegated to them by the referee.

Section 5. Registered Assignors
No one shall assign any match under the sanction or jurisdiction of the Federation who is not registered as an assignor with the Federation for the current year. A State Association, league, tournament, or event may appoint an unregistered assignor in an emergency who may not serve past the end of the current fiscal year without becoming registered.

Section 6. Proper Assignment of Officials
Assignors are expected to assign officials in accordance with the level of training provided by the Federation Referee Program. Each State Referee Committee and/or SRA is empowered to take action against assignors who assign officials to games whose competitive levels are above and beyond the level of training provided. The level of training provided for an official is denoted by his or her referee grade.
