The Uniform and Equipment 

Now that you've passed the test and have registered with USSF, it's time to go out and buy your first uniform. The basic uniform for referees is a yellow shirt, black referee shorts, black socks with three stripes and black shoes. In addition to a uniform, you will need a watch, preferably one that counts down time. You'll need a whistle, a small book to keep score, a flipping coin, red and yellow cards and a set of flags. Now you ask yourself where do I get all this stuff? During the clinic your instructor will tell you where you can buy all this stuff. Some vendors offer referee kits to help keep down the cost of new gear.
