ALL RE-CERTIFYING REFEREES

PLEASE NOTE: To clarify a communication from US Soccer, any referee who currently holds a VALID 2020 referee license will automatically be grandfathered for the 2021 season due to COVID-19.** If you do NOT hold a valid 2020 license, you must complete the online requirements for 2021 certification.
**This does NOT include any Supplemental Courses (i.e. Background Check, SafeSport Training or Introduction to Safe and Healthy Playing Environments) that might expire during 2021.
