Welcome to the official home of United States Soccer Federation referees, assessors, instructors, mentors, and assignors in Kansas.  The mission of the Kansas State Referee Development Program is to develop quality referees who will apply the Laws of the Game consistently across all leagues and levels of competition in the State of Kansas which will result in soccer being played in a manner that is safe, fair, and enjoyable for players, coaches, and fans.   We work to deliver on our mission by developing, delivering, and administering programs in the areas of instruction, assessment, mentoring, and assigning.  Our communications tool state-wide is www.kansasreferee.net which provides a sharing of information and resources for all.

Advice to Parents of New Referees -  Each year, thousands of boys and girls become referees for the first time. Being a referee can be a very rewarding experience, but it's important that new referees have the support of their families. This video will focus on helpful tips for the parents of new referees.


Kansas State Referee Committee Concussion Policy:


If it appears, in even the slightest case, that a player or players may have sustained some type of a possible head injury, stop the game immediately, beckon on the coach to attend to the player, follow USSF protocol on having the player go to the sidelines, before they can return.  There is only one exception: the goalkeeper does not have to leave the field of play.  Certainly, in every case, tell the coach, there may be a possible head injury, then remove yourself from the area of the injury, let the coach/trainor attend to the player.

YOU MUST ERROR ON THE POSSIBLITY THAT THERE MAY BE HEAD TRAUMA, RATHER THAN DOING NOTHING OR ALLOWING THE BALL TO LEAVE THE FIELD, PRIOR TO TAKING ACTION.  YOU ARE NOT AN EXPERT, DON'T ASK IF THE PLAYER IS OK THEN PROCEED WITH PLAY. GET THE COACH ON THE FIELD IN EVERY INSTANCE.
