United Soccer Association is in the final stages of preparing to launch the 2019-2020 season.   USA League has been a league and scheduling body going into our 27 th year.    Board Members of USA League are made up of dedicated individuals from our Member Clubs.  

Other new leagues come and go. These leagues are all available to our clubs to participate.   USA League has comprehensive By-laws and Rules of Competition.   USA League works to ensure all clubs are respected and games played as committed. We anticipate to schedule between 3000 and 4000 games in Boys and Girls,   10 Age Groups.  In 26 years of scheduling, USA League has scheduled 3000 games plus per year.     2018-2019 season with 3400 games scheduled , un-played games were less than 2%.     USA League is proud of our effort to make sure all teams 1. Have balanced-competitive play.   2. Secured fields properly maintained to play on.   3. The opposing team will show up as committed to play.   4. Certified Referees present to conduct the match.  

Every club has questions to resolve and administrative duties to handle.    – Who are we playing?    Where are we playing?  When are we playing?   Can we reschedule?   These are questions that you should have answers to, before signing up to play in a league.   Having these answers helps guarantee that players and parents get the Soccer Experience that they anticipate and deserve.   USA League has answered these questions for 26 Years.   We work and update constantly to make it a user friendly organization.   USA League puts in a lot of resources, experienced Board Members and a transparent set of rules, that are fairly enforced by the league.    USA League is well known organization and proven positive experience.    Look forward to seeing all in the 2019-2020 season.    usa-soccer.org

Responding to the Referee Problem

In response to the growing issue of training and retaining quality referees, the USA Executive Board has taken a hard look at the reason for the referee shortage.  Referees have cited concern for personal safety; inappropriate player, parent and spectator conduct and lack of respect as some of reasons for the referee shortage.  The following measures will be implemented for the upcoming season:

  1. Require member clubs to host referee training courses (new or refresher) once every three years,  to increase the referee pool.
  2. USA will offer several online MANDATORY training sessions, to educate referees on USA Bylaws, Rules and Regulations and appropriate game day procedures.   
  3. Require coaches to be responsible for parent and spectator behavior. (FYSA rule)
  4. Continue the Referee Mentoring program; Senior Referees will provide hands on observation and training to younger referees.
  5. Continue the use of the Referee Assessment Report; tool to provide feedback and follow up.
  6. Continue to utilize central Referee Assignors, to ensure fair and objective officiating at all USA league games.
