U.S. Youth Futsal works closely with the U.S. Soccer Federation and state referee organizations to ensure that all officials and assignors are certified and annually recertified. Assignors and referees must be U.S. Soccer certified to work U.S. Youth Futsal games.
The U.S. Youth Futsal Regional Championships, National Championships, Regional I.D. Camps and National I.D. Camp are designated as excellent opportunities for referee development. The Northeast Regional Futsal Championships in Boston and the U.S. Youth Futsal National Championships and National I.D. Camp in Kansas City annually include the presence of FIFA Futsal Instructor Ed Marco of U.S. Soccer and FIFA Futsal Referee Shane Butler. For these three events, referees must apply online and must be selected by the Referee Committee, which is led by Mr. Marco.
