Certification Classes

New Referees

To work for the Great Falls Reston Referee Program, you must be 13 yrs of age. Your first step is to go to the State of Virginia’s website at, click on Clinics Listing (area is North; type is New Referee Grade 8 Combo) to find an available course. This is a combination course of classroom and online modules and you must attend all sessions. Once you have determined which clinic best fits your schedule, you will then need to go to Registration – please read the instructions carefully. A class will be offered in Reston/Great Falls in March (for the spring season) and August (for the fall season).

Once you have completed and passed the course, you will then need to register in the Referee Program’s database so that you can start receiving communications from our Assignor. This is also how you indicate you are interested in working games. To be considered for assignment to games through the Great Falls Reston Referee Program, you are required to have the correct uniform and equipment. This includes – black shorts, black socks with 3 white stripes at the top, black shoes, a yellow referee jersey, a set of flags, a referee data wallet with yellow and red card, game day report forms, a whistle and a watch with a stop-watch function. We also ask that you have a back-up, plain black t-shirt (Michael’s sells these) in case of a color conflict with a visiting team’s jersey.

Mentor Program

The Referee Program’s mentors walk the fields on game days and offer advice and support to all our officials. Each season (Spring and Fall) begins with a pre-season meeting and all of our referees are expected to attend, especially newly certified officials.

Referee Recertification

The Program will sponsor recertification courses during the months of January and February of each year.  However, you can recertify anywhere in Northern Virginia, the District, Maryland and anywhere in the U.S.
