A sincere Thank you to all of our referees for your continued service to Los Gatos United. If you are interested in become a referee for our competitive or recreational program,  please read the details below to get the process started. 


The responsibilities of a referee must be taken seriously. Remember that you are the symbol of integrity, the ultimate authority at every game ensuring fair and safe play. Many people including players, coaches, spectators, other referees, and league officials are depending on you to show up on time to your game assignments, so come prepared to perform your game official duties to the very best of your ability.


The first level of referee certification is called Grassroots. Once you become a Grassroots referee, you can officiate competitive, small-sided or recreational youth and amateur adult matches.

All Grassroot candidate referees must complete four (4) assignments in the US Soccer Digital Learning Center, attend an in-person field session and, (if over the age of 18), complete an NCSI background check.

To begin the journey of becoming a Los Gatos United Grassroots referee, follow the Register Now link below.

Renew for 2021/2022

The 2022 referee license renewal is right around the corner and here is some information to help you with this fun journey.

There are thousands of referees that did not register for 2020 and wanted to wait to register for 2022 registration to open up, well this is the moment of truth. In order for you to referee in 2021 and 2022, you must be registered by USSF.

In 2020 CNRA stopped using Game Officials for their referee registration platform. CNRA has switched (100%) to the US Soccer Learning Center and we all have to use that platform. Here is a link for the information that I am sharing with you:
