MNSRC Grasssroots Tier Program

The newest version of the Grassroots Tier program was released on January 29, 2021. This program completely replaces the pre-existing program. It is a self-paced program that resolves around participation in five categories: law knowledge, fitness, classroom, online topics, and game experience.

The replacement of the old system became necessary because the classification of officials within it was too subjective. The SRC also felt the old system was misunderstood to be some sort of substitute for referee progression due to changes in the USSF grade system, resulting in over-emphasis on tier level and unrealistic expectation that a higher tier should mandate better assignments.

The emphasis of the new Tier system is self-motivated participation designed to provide higher tier classification for officials who are continuously participating. Stronger officials will be utilizing the system to constantly review the Law book and maintain year-round fitness levels.

There is no requirement for participation in the Tier program, it is completely optional. Referee tier level is shared with assignors through the SRC Assignor system, but it is up to assignors to use tier level as they see fit. The SRC does not utilize tier level in any advancement or classification of officials in Minnesota within the USSF system.
