Physical Fitness Requirements Update

Updates to the Fitness requirements


All, as many of you are aware the USSF Fitness requirements have changed. Here is a summary of the requirements that the State of Delaware is applying in accordance with the USSF rules


Grade 6 and above are required to pass the FIFA Fitness Test


Grade 7, 8, 9 do not require the completion of a Fitness test, However the State of Delaware is requiring referee to pass the Cooper Fitness test to officiate the following leagues in Delaware: Adult League, Champions League (Previously Premiere and Colonial) starting with the 2015 season

ˇ Assignors will be provided the list of referees that have passed the fitness requirements prior to the season starting

ˇ Grade 6 that pass the FIFA Fitness test will be exempt

ˇ Referees that complete the same test during the High school fitness test will be exempt if a Delaware SRC member is present during the test.

Note: if you are a Grade 7 Referee and aspire to upgrade we recommend you first watch or practice the FIFA Fitness Test as it is very challenging
