Steps to Upgrade

1) Register for the current year. During the registration adjust your Referee Grade to:

GRNRE - Grassroots National Refereee Emeritus (Grade 13)
GRRRC - Grassroots Regional Referee Candidate (Grade 7A)
GRSRE - Grassroots Regional Referee Emeritus (Grade 15)
RR - Regional Referee (Grade 6/5)

If you would like to change your Referee Grade, contact the NCSRA Office.

2) Fill out a match log spreadsheet. It must be submitted and then approved by NCSRA. The amount of games needed to upgrade are based upon which grade you wish to become. All games must follow the match log template. For North Carolina, we only recognize Referee positions. We no longer count Assistant Referee positions for upgrade.
