TSSA Rec Referee Orange Badge Program

We are happy to let you know about a special program available in Tennessee for children 13 years old and under to referee recreational games through the Orange Badge Program.

The Tennessee State Referee Rec Program is a two-year program. The cost to register is $110.00 for two years and also includes a referee uniform (jersey, shorts and socks).  To complete the program the candidate would need to complete on-line lessons and then attend an in-person field training session, usually lasting 2-3 hours. Once complete, they will only be able to referee small sided in-house rec games.

Please note that the TSRP Rec program is specific to each club. Participants will operate within their designated club, with the club hosting the course. Additional volunteers from the club will assist with instruction, provide leadership, and review local recreational rules.

To register for the clinic, candidates must sign up through tnsoccer.org or by clicking here. Click on ‘Find Clinics’ and then ‘Become or recertify as a non-USSF Game Official’. During registration, you will need to input the Invitation Code (RecRef18).

Clinic Details:

  • Date: March 9th
  • Time: 12pm – 3pm
  • Location: Richard Siegel Soccer Park
  • Instructor: Don Barnett
  • Invitation Code: RecRef18

Registration Cut-Off Date: March 4th (This is the final day to register for the clinic, as online lessons must be completed before the in-person field training. If an extension is needed, please inform me.)

Keeper Wars

Congrats to our 3 Kings Hammer Murfreesboro players who placed at Keeper Wars Ink last week. Congratulations Kelton Russel, Reagan Denton and Izzy Kinsman on a job well done!

February Education: Let’s Discuss Gratitude

Throughout February, our partners at Soccer Parenting have been focusing on the theme of “Gratitude” in youth soccer. Kings Hammer supports this idea because we believe gratitude is foundational to our desire to build a strong community within our club and continue to develop an environment in which youth athletes can thrive. 

Gratitude is a powerful quality that can transform our perspective and enhance our soccer experience in countless ways.  Gratitude is positivity and being grateful for the things, people, and experiences in our lives.  It is the feeling of appreciation and thankfulness. It rises in the desire to return kindness and joy to others. 

Whether you’re a parent supporting your child’s passion, a coach shaping young minds, or a player chasing your dreams, we are fortunate to have soccer in our lives.  So, our first step should be to reflect and appreciate the privilege and opportunities it presents.
