Seminole FC is always looking for hardworking, dedicated, and professional acting referees that are 13 years of age and older.
If you are interested in becoming a referee you must start course offered by Florida Soccer Referees.
#1 What is the minimum age to become a referee?
Effective July 1, 2019 the minimum age is 13 years old. Anyone who prior to July 1, 2019 was certified as a referee and was less than 13 years old is allowed by US Soccer to continue their referee certification for the 2020 registration year and beyond.
#2 When can I start my entry referee course?
The online course is available immediately upon registration and payment.
If logged out, log back in to the member home page and follow the links to start the online course.
#3 How long does it take to complete the course or how long do I have to complete the course?
Work at you own pace on your own time, but don’t take too long as there are games waiting to be refereed. When registering for your course you chose a field training event that you must attend in order to complete all your requirements to become a referee.
#4 When I complete my online referee courses, do I have to attend the Field Training Event (FTE)?
The FTE is the second part of the new referee course. When registering for your course you chose a field training event that you must attend in order to complete all your requirements to become a referee. Making the transition from the classroom (computer keyboard) to the field is why the FTE’s were created. Specially trained instructors and administrators follow an approved curriculum to provide each new referee with the necessary skills and knowledge needed for their very first game.
