The process for registering as a New Referee is to use the USSF Learning Center at  Attached is a PDF to assist you with signing in and accessing a course.  The classroom portion of the New Referee clinic is eight (8) hours in length.
Please note that background screening for recertifying Referees 18 years of age and older, MUST be applied for and cleared before US Soccer will allow registering for any course.  All new background checks should be initiated by going to Available Courses/Supplemental Courses/Background Screening. The background screening takes between 2-10 days for a response. As all course work including the online portion MUST be completed at least 48 hours prior to the classroom attendance, Referees should plan accordingly when they choose a course.  We recommend signing up for a course at least 2 weeks in advance to give yourselves enough time to complete the background screening, register and complete all assignments.

1. After arriving at the Learning Center referee landing page, you can “Sign In"
2. If you are 18 years old or older, please see the information regarding background screening above.  After completing the background screening proceed to the next step.
