Becoming a Licensed Coach or Referee

The licensing of both referees and coaches is the responsibility of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties in Pennsylvania. In New Jersey, it is the responsibility of the New Jersey State Soccer Association .

To become either a licensed USSF referee or coach you must contract your state office who will give you information on the requirements for either of the licenses and give you a list of the available course sessions which you must take in order to be tested to be subsequently licensed. The state offices can also inform you of the continuing education requirements and testing need to retain your license.

To contact your state office you can call or write to:
