Grade 5 (National Referee Candidate)

All Grade 5 referees must complete the Grade 6 requirements and when additional Grade 5 requirements have been met, NCSRA will notify USSF of the change in grade.

Those requirements are:

Passing either the Referee or the Assistant Referee Physical Fitness Test. These PFTs are also difficult to stage so there will not be many opportunities.

Passing Three Formal Assessments by three different National Coaches.

Grade 6 assessments may count towards Grade 5 if those assessments are completed by two different National Referee Coaches.


Assessment Payment

ALL Assessments towards 2018 will be the responsibility of the Referee.

ANY 2018 assessment from this point on requires that assessment registration payment be made BEFORE the assessment.

Payment for Assessments are a flat fee of $80.00 per assessment 


If you have already completed one or both 2018 assessments then NCSRA is paying for those and you are rewarded for your diligence. 

It is recommended that you pay for the 2nd assessment after you have completed the first.
