US Soccer has updated the pathway for referees.

Grassroots referees are the starting level for new referees.
You can also become a Regional and National Referee after completing fitness and written tests to do higher level matches.
Please go to the Ohio North Referee site for more information on Upgrades.

High School and College are other paths which referees can progress to more challenging matches.
