Grassroots Referee Training

US Soccer has revamped the referee training program which has opened up many more opportunities for those interested in becoming a referee here in Deridder.  BUSA will still have the club referee training however we encourage anyone interested to complete the new Grassroots referee program.  This program has a mandatory online portion which is managed by US Soccer and then an “on-field” portion that is conducted by individual state associations.   
Step 1.  Log on to, sign up for an account, select and complete the online portion of the grassroots referee training.  This training has a $20 fee
Step 2.  Register for an “in-person” course.  We have 2 in our area this Summer; Alexandria on Sunday August 17th and Lake Charles on Saturday August 24th.    When you register for the “in person” course there will be a background check fee of $30 (for those over 18) and a local course fee- usually $20-30. 

Minimum age for referees is 13
