What is an Assessment?
An assessment is a referee evaluation. A USSF certified assessor will watch the referee crew officiate a match and then conduct a post-game debrief with the crew. During the post-game debrief the assessor will point out positive characteristics as well as possible improvements for the referee crew. These points of emphasis are discussed in order to help the referee become more efficient in his/her performance.
Why should I get one?
Assessments are great ways to get feedback on how you are doing and how you can improve. They are necessary in upgrading to the next USSF Grade level and for maintaining certain USSF Grade levels.
As a referee, it is our responsibility to constantly improve our abilities to better serve the game. An assessment, where a third-party can provide feedback, is one of the best ways to do that.
How do I get one?
To get an official USSF assessment, please contact the Illinois Soccer Referee Committee at the following contact information:
OR to get an unofficial EGSC assessment, please contact the Referee-in-Chief. For unofficial assessments, referees should expect a very similar process; however, these will be conducted by experienced USSF officials who are not necessarily registered as USSF assessors.
