Laws of the Game

(Official IFAB updated May 2019)

The NJ State Referee Committee with the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program teaches from the IFAB official Laws of the Game.  While not all of these rules are applicable to MUSC Recreation games and there are specific local policies, knowing the LOTG (Laws of the Game) and having them on hand while at the fields may be very valuable to you while working.

This course is for returning Grassroots Referees who have been previously certified.

Grassroots referees can officiate competitive, small-sided or recreational youth and amateur adult matches.


In order to re-certifying as a Grassroots Referee you must meet the follow eligibility standards:

1. 13 years or older

2. Have held a Grassroots license for a minimum of one (1) year within the last 3 years

Course Requirements

Re-certifying Grassroots Referees must pass a Grassroots Re-certification Quiz, complete the
Introduction to Safe and Healthy Playing Environments and, if over the age of 18, pass an NCSI
background check. Some state referee associations may require an in-person component to the
re-certification process. Please read the course details and contact your course administrator if
you have any questions regarding in-person vs online certification requirements.
