Referee Information

All referees that work TCSL matches must be certified with the U.S. Soccer Federation through the Minnesota State Referee Committee.



All league matches are assigned by the home club. To find a referee assignor, use the TCSL Club Directory to find the appropriate individual to get in contact with.

For all certification information, visit the Minnesota SRC website. Due to COVID-19, all requirements for first-year referees may be completed online.
