Alaska Grassroots Referee Initiative

Calling Referees Across Alaska

The Alaska Grassroots Referee Initiative is an excellent promotion for affiliate clubs and leagues as they recruit and mentor new youth officials. The Initiative will sponsor youth 19 years of age and younger who would like to become an entry level soccer referee. Alaska Youth Soccer is calling for the soccer community for continued support and donations. We are in need of youth players who would like to be certified and in need of coaches, parents and community members who support the ambitions of these players by assisting with their cost of certification ($30) and the purchase of their USSF Starter referee kit ($60) or by making a general donation to the Alaska Grassroots Referee Initiative.

Alaska Youth Soccer will sponsor the first five newly-certified Referees

Getting Started

The easiest way to get started is to contact your District Referee Administrator. Contact info for all Alaska referee administrators can be found at the Alaska Soccer Referee Association Contact Us page. If an administrator is currently not listed for your region, contact the State Youth Referee Administrator.

The Alaska Soccer Referee Association website, aksra.org, has many other resources for referees as well.

Please note: The Alaska Grassroots Referee Initiative's goals are to offer multiple trainings and mentorship opportunities throughout the year while new officials gain experience officiating, working with a team, and with game management at the local, state, and regional levels. New Referees MUST complete ALL steps of the certification course, attend the field training, and receive their new USSF ID number to be eligible. The Alaska Grassroots Referee Initiative is an excellent promotion for member clubs and leagues as they recruit and mentor new youth officials.
