Step by Step -- Recertification

On behalf of the Idaho Soccer Referee Committee, we are fully committed to help with US Soccer's transition to a completely integrated resource for referee training and administration. With any new software roll out we have encountered technical and conversion issues going to the new platform. We started our journey on July 1st of 2019 with all new referees using the center for new classes and starting with 2020 all recertifications will be done here as well.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during the transition!
