Do you ever wish there was someone you could talk to about refereeing?  Someone with a little more experience who has been at it longer than you?

Do you ever wonder what it might take to become a better referee?  Are you thinking about advancing your referee career so you can officiate the highest level of games?   Or maybe you just want to improve or fine-tune your skills but you just don’t know where to turn.

It could be that what you need is a mentor!

What is a mentor?

A “mentor” is an experienced referee who has been where you are now.  A mentor will work with you toward achieving your goals, provide support and encouragement, offer suggestions, and share knowledge.

A mentor can assist you with your choice of career path, whether it is recreational soccer or the MLS, and help put you into contact with assessors and assignors who can help you reach your goals.

Who needs a mentor?

We all do.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at it for quite a while, all referees benefit from having a mentor.

We understand that new referees need mentors the most. 

We know it can be nerve-wracking when you're just starting out.

A mentor is on your side, reassuring you when your calls are right and helping you understand how to call an effective game when things get tough.

We want you to have success throughout your career.

A mentor can help prepare you for the different levels of play and work with you as you learn to officiate in fast-paced, competitive game situations - and can help you take the guesswork out of the upgrade process.
