New 2021 Referee Course Announced!

2021 Grassroots entry level Referee clinic information:

When: Dec 19,2020
Where: Virtual Zoom Session
Time: 9:00AM - 10:30AM CT

Only new, first time referees registering for 2021 should sign up for this course. Grassroots and regional referees registered in 2020 who are recertifying for 2021 using the license extension option should not register for this course. Instead, follow the steps sent out by the Alabama State Referee Committee.

To register for this course, you must be 14 years of age or older (or turning 14 before February 1, 2021). If 18 years of age or older, you must also complete the required background check (found under "Supplemental Courses") before you will be issued your referee license. Individuals who have lived outside of the U.S. for more than sixth months in the last seven years should contact the course administrator before registering for this course or initiating the background check process.

After registering, all online requirements listed under the "Assignments" tab for this course MUST be completed before the referee license is approved and issued. You must also attend the in-person Zoom virtual session on the designated day and time. Once you attend the in-person session, pass the background check, and complete all online assignments for this course, your 2021 registration will be approved.

The in-person virtual Zoom session will be held on December 19th from 9:00-10:30 AM. Use the following link to join the call:

The Alabama SRC will also be providing optional ongoing educational opportunities through a monthly webinar series covering various topics.

Recorded videos for the webinar series can be found here:
