New! Two Stripe U.S. Soccer Sock
The USSF authorizes either the tradional three-stripe sock or the U.S. Soccer two-stripe sock (pictured).
Beginning in 2014, this is the sock that is recommended for PWSRA games and required in 2015. This will allow new refs to buy the new socks initially and give time to veteran refs to spend $10 on a new pair of socks. In all games referees should wear the same style socks.
Virtually all higher level referees wear only this sock and many state associations have madated its use. This sock will give PWSRA referees a more professional appearance and appearance is a big part of making a positive first impression.
