IREF is an organization that works with recreational leagues to train current and new referees ages 14 and up to become IREF certified recreational soccer referees.
The IREF program is designed to provide valuable life skills of judgment, critical thinking, conflict resolution, preparation, communication (verbal and non-verbal), improvisation, professionalism, fitness, management and decorum.
IREF helps individuals gain knowledge of the laws of soccer, the mechanics of refereeing, and match management.
IREF provides the resources to get individuals their IREF referee certifications and acquires the proper uniform and gear. If an individual meets the scholarship criteria, then the cost of IREF program, certification, and gear may be provided or deferred. IREF can also assist if the referee would like to become U.S. Soccer Federation and/or National Federation of High Schools certified referees.
