Referee Recertification Classes
Information for referee recertification can be found at http://www.michiganreferee.com and at http://michiganreferee.org/types_of_classes.html
All referees must be current in their certification for the season they are officiating. Some certifications expire at different times, depending on when the referee finished their class.
Refer to the expiration date on your U.S.Soccer Federation card for the exact expiration date. BASA will only use certified referees.
BASA Referees are responsible for their own uniform and equipment. (Add referee equipment list link from above, here as well) Referees must be dressed appropriately and be professional in their duties to receive pay. Referee equipment and uniforms can be purchased at the following links:
BASA does not carry or supply referee uniforms or equipment. Please be sure that you have a SOCCER referee jersey and not another sports referee jersey.
Black is the only acceptable color jersey for recreational soccer games at the BASA Complex. Yellow jersey is highly recommended for officiating Select/Travel games at the BASA complex.
