South Texas Soccer Referees

Referee Fitness Testing


Fitness testing is required for State Grade 6 and Grade 5 Referee Registration. It is also required for Emeritus Referees wishing to officiate at a higher level than Grade 7 games. Fitness testing must occur in the Registration window of July 1st-June 30th.

 

STSR conducts two types of Fitness Tests:

  1. State  Level Testing - Grade 6

  2. State 5 Level Testing - for Grade 5 Registration or for eligiblity to officiate
     Professonal Soccer Referee games

 

Fitness test results are good for 12 months (365 days). A later fitness test result will replace an earlier fitness test result (even if the later was a Fail and the earlier was a Pass). The exception to this, is that a Failure at a State 5 level fitness test will NOT remove a Passing result from an earlier State Grade 6 fitness test.

For State (Grade 6 or Grade 5) Referee Registration purposes a fitness test must be passed within the registration period for the Badge Year. For example for badge year 2019, the registration window is July 1st, 2018 - June 28th, 2019.
