Our Association is made up of approximately 150 USSF certified referees living in and around the southwest portion of Los Angeles County, California. SSBRA provided referee crews for 2600 matches in 2016 and for 1600 matches through the end of June in 2017.  The forecast for the rest of 2017 shows that SSBRA will be refereeing even more in 2017.  SSBRA provides referees for youth matches for the Southern California Development Soccer League (DSL) and the Coast Soccer League (CSL) leagues, all of the matches played by the Los Angeles J-League (an amateur men’s league), a number of South Bay Peninsula Soccer League (SBPSL) matches, all Manhattan Beach 7v7, all Beverly Hills 7v7 matches, all City of Lawndale youth matches, CSL Spring League matches, DSL Spring League matches, State Cup and National Cup matches organized by CYSA-S, and numerous tournaments and “friendly” matches which are held throughout Southern California.  In 2016/2017 SSBRA grew its client base by adding several new leagues including Culver City YMCA League,  Mar Vista League, Aspire Juanita Tate Academy Charter School League, and the ZogSports League.  This is the most aggressive growth by SSBRA in its history and the current board is continuing to look for new clients and ways to grow work with its existing clients.

We meet regularly in a collegial setting to discuss soccer refereeing, receive training, and to conduct the business of the organization.  Our meetings include SSBRA business and Cal South lead monthly referee training.

In 2017, SSBRA is continuing to host the Cal South led Referee Professional Development (RPD) classes at North High School in Torrance.  This provides our members the advantage of a RPD training class in a convenient South Bay location.  SSBRA has been hosting RPDs since 2014 and is the only Referee Association teaming with Cal South by hosting RPDs.  Since starting to host RPDs, the number of SSBRA referee who have upgraded to USSF Grade 7 or higher has increased from less than 7% to almost 50%, showing the association’s member’s commitment to improving the quality of refereeing in Southern California.
