Message from the BoardUpdated 7/20/2014

Welcome to SSBRA.org, Soccer South Bay Referee Association's online resource center.

Our Association is made up of approximately 190 USSF certified referees living in and around the southwest portion of Los Angeles County, California. The Association will assign more than 1600 youth matches for the Coast Soccer League and the Southern California Development Soccer League during the 2014 season, all of the matches played by the Los Angeles J-League (an amateur men's league), a number of South Bay Peninsula Soccer League matches, all Manhattan Beach 7 v 7 matches, all Beverly Hills 7v7 matches, all City of Lawndale youth matches, CSL Spring League games, DSL Spring League matches, State Cup and National Cup matches organized by CYSA-S, and numerous tournaments and "friendly" games held throughout Southern California. All of this totals to about 5,500 matches a year covered by SSBRA.

We meet regularly in a collegial setting to discuss soccer refereeing issues, receive training and to conduct the business of the organization. Our meetings often feature guest speakers including past and present FIFA referees, and Cal South monthly training.
