Anyone 13 years or older may become a USSF (United States Soccer Federation) certified referee. Many young referees who start with the Casper Soccer Club will continue on to state and national referee status. Many adults take up refereeing to help the sport and for the enjoyment of the game and to earn extra money. Current Casper referees have worked USYS Regional Events and National Championship tournaments, High School matches and Collegiate matches.
The CSC competitive programs requires all referees to hold aUSSF Grassroots USSF certification. Young referees are typically assigned to the youngest age groups to gain experience and learn the art of refereeing. For the young referee, working the recreational games can be a great paying job. For the more experienced referee, Wyoming State League and Soccer Tournaments provide more of a challenge and better pay as well. Many coaches, Parents and Players work as referees at the tournament they attend for the enjoyment of the experience and to help pay for traveling expenses.
