Registration with TASO will be made online beginning on July 1st using the TASO website. Registration can be completed on the TASO.org website.

The link is in the top right hand corner of each page.

 

Returning officials will pay $75 for their TASO registration (background check, rules book, insurance, etc.).

For returning officials who do not register before October 17, 2017 a late fee of $25 will be charged by TASO when you register – total $100.

 

For New officials there is a $75 non-refundable application fee, however if you are accepted, the application fee will satisfy your New Member dues.

TASO Dallas require that all officials are registered with US Soccer as a minimum Grade 8 referee.

The only exception being collegiate athletes playing soccer at the JC/NAIA or Division 1, 2 or 3 level, or those college athletes playing intra-mural soccer or officiating intra-mural soccer.

 

If you have issues with Registration using the TASO.org website please email our Secretary, Bret Harp.

Our Chapter also charges a $10 Chapter fee, and requires all officials to pre-pay  a $80 assignor fee initial payment online prior to our meetings.

This year our Assignor fees remain $5 for a whistle (center or dual), $4 for an assistant (line).

The initial $80 will be used to cover assignor fees and as the season progresses you will be required to add additional payments to cover assignor fees.

Scrimmage fees will also be available to add to your assignor fee account.

Assignor fees must be paid in full 30 days from the end of the season. You must contact the assignors if there are issues that would stop you from paying your dues.

 

All officials will be required to pass the online test scoring 80 or above – no exceptions. You will NOT be assigned games unless you pass the test. The test is available in English and Spanish.

All officials will also be required to take the online training session when available. This will cover rules changes and other updates. This mandatory training session is required for all officials.

  1. Kevin Perry says:

    The PayPal section offers a two-part payment of dues, but this action does not. For those desiring to pay by check, is there a two-part payment option or just a single payment. And if the two-part payment is possible, then what are the amounts and due dates.

    • Good question Kevin. We have updated the Registration information.
      You can mail a check for $70 by September 1 and another check for $125 by December 1, or you can pay the full amount of $195 by September 1.

    Can you explain please: Definition of chapter name and chapter code.
    Living in Flower Mound.
    Thank you.
    Vladimir.

  3. What’s the difference between a returning and reinstate member?

    • A returning member was a referee last season. A reinstate member was a referee in previous years, but not last year.

      • Thank you. What form should a member who needs to be reinstated fill out? Also, what about payment?

        • Please use the returning member form, but mark that it is a reinstate. We will need the additional registration fees to pass through to TASO. Initial payment is $95. Sorry, we don’t have a Paypal option for this.

  4. Mike Kraft says:

    Registration paid in full for the HS 2013 – 2014 season. I see that there is a mandatory officials meeting on 11/11. Will we be notified of location and time?

  5. Cinty Tyndall says:

    can I please have someone email my TASO ID # to me? Thanks.

    • Please email our secretary Jeff Murray and he will send it back to you. You can send in your forms and we will fill in your ID.

  6. How can I become a referee? What are the steps? I have plenty of experience playing and coaching soccer. I refereed for a couple of years abroad.
    Thanks.
