How to Get Games

In order to be assigned to referee soccer matches in Iowa, you must get in contact with a USSF-certified "Referee Assignor". You were given a list of local assignors during your entry level referee course, but you can view a list of all assignors in Iowa by visiting our assignor contact page, or checking the list at the bottom of this page.

It is your responsibility to contact your local assignor and let him/her know that you are a certified official, and are ready to work games. Most assignors will want to know your availability, so be ready with a list of dates and times that you are/are not available to work matches when you contact them. Also, be sure and let them know of a reliable way to contact you in case of last-minute schedule  changes. Many assignors will assign games on a week-by-week basis, so be sure to ask what the procedure is for getting games in the future. As a USSF certified referee, you are an independent contractor, and as such may work for any assignor, but it is your responsibility to contact them for games.

As a new referee you should be prepared to work mainly ARs, or centers on younger age groups until the assignor is able to identify your abilities to handle more difficult games. Do not be discouraged if your first season is spent doing "little kids" as all referees go through this process of development. If you have the opportunity to work with more experienced referees, be sure to ask them any questions you might have as this advice will come in handy when you receive harder assignments.

Below is a list of all of the assignors registered in the state of Iowa, as well as the city in which they live. It is recommended that you work for an assignor close by so they can help you to improve your refereeing abilities. If you have further questions regarding games in your area, please visit the Local Association page and contact your local referee association.

Only active registered assignors with US Soccer are listed below. Contact the State Director of Assignment for more information on getting registered.
