Recently US Soccer has changed its approach to teaching and evaluating referees. Formerly experienced referees could certify as either a teacher (instructor) or an evaluator (assessor), but US Soccer has recognized and embraced the concept of “coaches” which combine both skill sets to help build skills within the referee community. The first step in the coaching pathway is the Referee Mentor program and certification. You can learn more details about this course and the referee coaching pathway here.
