About Us

About Livermore Referee Association

The Livermore Referee Association exists to provide a structure for people to learn how to be a referee for youth soccer as well as provide qualified referees for local youth soccer games to the best of our ability. Membership in the Livermore Referee Association is open to all persons in the community who earn and maintain their status as a USSF-registered referee.

Regular Membership Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of most months of the year. We have current news and association business, open discussion (always interesting) and a presentation that is instructional and always topical.

Meetings are at 7pm at the Livermore Library located at 1188 South Livermore Avenue, Livermore, CA 94550
