4. Referee Websites
There are many places around the web to learn, share, research, and commiserate with your colleagues. Here are some that I find useful.
- Ask a Question – New Jersey Referee Committee’s authoritative source for answers
(read Answers to Previous Questions)
- Ask the Ref – Great panel of referees from around the world that provide well-rounded opinions and well-grounded facts about the art and science of being an effective soccer referee at all levels.
- Ask a Soccer Referee – Jim Allen’s site – this used to have the blessing of USSF, but they now publish elsewhere.
- In the Opinion of the Referee – A blog on all things referee, including helpful case studies.
- The Watch and the Whistle – a very thorough guide for the new referee.
- Soccer Referee USA – another referee blog with a US focus.
- Big Soccer Referee Forum – blah blah blah (kidding) some is interesting!
There are many similar sites around, but I have found these helpful, entertaining, or both…
