At United Soccer Alliance of Indiana, “Junior Refs” ref PSC U5 and U6 Rec games and are trained before each season. For more information or to register for the next class contact USAi Commissioner Junior Refs.
The next level above “Junior Refs” is “Grade 9 Ref” who ref older age Rec games. The next level after that is “Grade 8 Refs” who ref travel games. The “Grade” is the level Ref course and does NOT refer to school system grades.
Refs are all ages, including adults. Depending upon the course and the candidate’s maturity, the lower age limits are around: 10 years old for Junior Refs; 12 years old for Grade 9 Refs and Grade 8 Refs.
Junior Ref Welcome (U5/U6 games)
If you are not ready to ref travel league games and for USAi’s newer licensed Refs: USAi’s in house ref assignor Bill Walters will assign Grade 8 and Grade 9 refs to USAi’s Rec U7-U12 in house league.
