As a Newcomer, you are just beginning and are not familiar with how to referee, but you have a desire to learn! Your first assignment will be to complete the steps below:
      •If you have not already done so, become a USA Pickleball member.
      •Watch the 2018 Referee Quick Start Video.
      •Download and become familiar with the 2022 Official Rulebook and Referee Handbook. *
      •Join the Pickleball Referees in Training Facebook group:
      •Take the online Player Test and the online Referee Test.  It’s challenging and fun!
      •Contact Randi Levenbaum to sign up for referee training classes.

After attending referee training classes, and putting in a lot of practice, your next goal may be to become a “credentialed” referee. At this point in your training, you may request an assessment of your referee skills to see if you qualify for a Level 1 or Level 2 Trained Referee Credential.
