Regional Referee is an upgraded level obtained by meeting US Soccer requirements that can be found on the Michigan Referee Committee website. There is an annual requirement of passing assessments, fitness tests, and an advanced rules test.
To encourage our members to strive for higher levels, GLASRA will reimburse referees up to $60 for the cost of a successful upgrade assessment.
If you upgraded recently, please reach out to our treasurer to request information on the process for this subsidy.
