Subject: SafeSport Transition | Update

Good afternoon,

As part of the recent Learning Center Release, we are still working with the U.S. Center for SafeSport to adapt to their transition to a new system.

Until this process is finalized, the SafeSport services in the Learning Center are temporarily unavailable, including the SafeSport training and certificate uploads. These issues began last week with the changeover.

In the interim, if any referees need to urgently complete the SafeSport training in the Learning Center, they should be directed toSafeSport’s website directly. If completed on SafeSport’s website, referees will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Use this link:
  2. Complete information on “Sign Up” page.
  3. Select “Catalog.”
  4. Click the Start button for “SafeSport Trained – U.S. Soccer Federation” to complete the course.
  5. Upload your certificate of completion.

Please also ensure the following is completed to ensure the records display correctly in the Learning Center:

  • Name, Date of Birth, and Primary Email used on SafeSport’s website match those used on their Learning Center profile
  • U.S. Soccer Federation is listed as a ‘member’ on their SafeSport profile. If we are not, the referee will need to contact SafeSport’s customer service directly to request USSF be added.
  • If you have a technical issue on SafeSport’s website, please call 1-720-676-6417 or email

We will notify all SRCs as soon as these issues are resolved and the transition is complete.

Thank you,

Referee Dept
