Annual Recertification

All US Soccer Instructors, Assessors, Assignors, and Referees require annual recertification.  Referee Grade 8 as well as Emeritus Grades 15 & 13  are 100% online.  The referee assignor recertification is also 100% online as well as all Futsal referees.

Referee Grades 5, 6, 7 have an annual fitness and online written test, annual classroom training, and other FLSRC mandated game requirements to successfully re-certify at their current referee grade.  The fitness test is included in the course registration. It is not necessary to register for a separate fitness course, an unnecessary extra charge will be incurred.

Assessors and Instructors have annual recertification requirements relative to their grades with classroom training and an online written test.

National, Professional and International Referees must renew through the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program Office with the collaboration of the State Referee Administrator.
