2016 Registration Important Information

If you are a currently registered 2015 referee, you should have received a note via GameOfficials addressing your 2016 registration. Here are a few highlights:
  • Please wait for a further note to register for 2016. Some have tried to re-register for 2015!
  • You need to carefully select your region during the registration process. Pleasanton is in the WEST region of California North. Here's a link to the Region List by Zip Code. If you don't register in the correct region, you cannot change it until you register for 2017.
  • You should register soon since it takes awhile to get through the system. You must be registered for 2016 to be assigned games by PSRA as of January 1, 2016.

For newer referees, your registration (upon successful completion of training) will cover you through 2016. However you still can change your Region so that it is correct.  Enter your account at
