My name. is Al Padley and I serve as the state director of assignors. I may be able to help you get connected to local games or tournaments in your area. I can also assist new assignors become licensed by US Soccer, which is a requirement to assign any sanctioned league or tournament.
Refereeing in a tournament can boost your skills and challenge you to take the next step. Assignors around the state are looking for the very best referees to attend their tournament. Consider giving it a try. If you leave your state to referee, you need permission from the SRA first. Learn about questions to ask before you select a league here.
We hope to see you at one of the tournaments around the state this year. See a list below...
