Welcome to the home page of South Texas Soccer Referees, Inc. (STSR). On behalf of the State Referee Committee let me encourage you to explore the valuable information available in these pages. Whether you are interested in becoming a referee for the first time or a current referee looking for information to recertify or perhaps to upgrade, you will find what you need.

STSR represents the interests of the over four thousand referees, instructors, assessors, and assignors registered with the U.S. Soccer Federation. Our mission is to recruit, train, and develop the referees who serve all the U.S. Soccer affiliated games in South Texas.

Past State

Recertification clinics will start being scheduled after September 1st.  This year, fully online Recertification will become available starting in November. A 2 hour In-Person hybrid Recert clinic will be offered (with online lessons) and a 5 hour In-Person Recert clinic will be offered (no online lessons) starting in September.
