Referee Membership

USQ offers a referee membership to all those who would like to become a head or lead assistant referee for the league. Any individual who wants to attempt head referee certification must first purchase a $50 non-refundable, non-transferable referee membership to USQ.  The seasonal referee membership will expire on June 30.
