Hub City Soccer is always looking for new referees. We work in conjunction with the South Dakota State Soccer Association (SDSSA) and the United States Federation (USSF) to train and register as many Aberdeen area referees as possible. Referees will be compensated for each game. For more information, please contact Tom Hilsendeger.

All new referees must attend an 8 hour Recreational Referee entry level course and pass a 50 question exam. New referee clinics are offered in the Spring and in the Fall.
