Classification System

All high school soccer boards in The State of Maine have three classes of officials.

Class 3: New member. No high school soccer officiating experience. Class 3 officials are not assigned varsity games.

Class 2: At the end of the season (October), class 3 officials may take a written test to become class 2. Test is provided by the board and is free. Class 2 officials must take the physical fitness test at the beginning of the season. Class 2 officials may only do varsity games in an emergency.

Class 1: At the end of the season, class 2 officials may take a written exam to be eligible to become a class 1 official. If the written exam is passed in the fall, the following summer/fall the official must take and pass the physical fitness exam and be assessed twice in either summer soccer or during the season. When the assessments are passed, the official becomes a probationary Class 1 official. High school varsity games are assigned to class 1 officials.
