Certification Options

There are two certification grade options for RAGE Recreational games. The Pleasanton Soccer Referee Association (PSRA) offers certification classes for both grade levels.

Grade 9 (U9-U14)

All U9 and U10 Recreational division teams are required to provide two Grade 9 (or higher) Certified Referees for league games. This is a wonderful opportunity to be directly involved with RAGE soccer. U9 and U10 games are *very* easy to officiate and a lot of fun. Grade 9 referees can also request paid assignments for U12 and U14 Rec games. Grade 9 is a FREE program for you – RAGE covers the costs for the certification class, training materials, and Referee gear.

> Class Time: Two 4 hour evening classes = 8 hours

Grade 8 (U9-U19)

The Grade 8 certification is a more advanced level than Grade 9 and allows you to officiate all ages and levels of youth soccer. Grade 8 Referees are paid for the games that they officiate. This is a great way to earn some extra money while enjoying the challenge of officiating and helping to fill an important and much needed role within our community.

> Class Time: Six 3 hour evening classes = 18 hours
