Re-certify as a Referee
*** US Soccer has made the 2021 Curriculum available in the Learning Center and we are currently reviewing the course material and updating instructions. Anyone who did not register for 2020 will be able to recertify for 2021 and will be able to referee this Fall and all of 2021. We hope to have this ready by August 1st. ***
