We held the fourth annual Top 100 Referees Forum on February 23, 2017. This was an opportunity for the referees in the Top 100 list to meet with assignors before the season and learn about the many opportunities for advancement into higher level leagues.
Rhode Island’s referee ranking system is the first in the nation. On March 22, 2014 we presented a breakout session at the US Soccer Referee Program Workshop in Chicago in order to share the concept with other states.
On March 5, 2016, we presented a second breakout session at the 2016 workshop, where we described how the Top 100 list is used at the state-wide level to conduct referee identification and promotion.
