There was no change for Emeritus Referees.

Effective July 1, 2019, all clinics are online, using the US Soccer Learning Center registration system.

For clinic schedules/approvals and questions, please contact the State Director of Instruction: Michael Posen (nmreferee94@gmail.com). Thanks.
Certifications are valid for each calendar year; i.e., all USSF certifications are effective January 1 through December 31.
If you were previously certified with USSF, but not for the calendar year 2020, you will need to recertify in order to officiate USSF-sanctioned matches.
Please note that the registration (or certifiction; i.e., completing your clinic requirements) period actually runs from July 1 to June 30.
