Lapse or Gap in Registration
Did you miss a year?
Registration with USSF is an annual process.
Referees can have between a one and three year lapse in registration without having to retake an entry level course.
At present, the USSF registration year runs from on or around 7/1 through 6/30 (or shortly before).
For example, registration for 2021 started shortly after 7/1/20 and will close on 6/20/21. Registration for 2022 opens on or around 7/1/21 and will close on or around 6/20/22.
Referees who have had a one-year to three-year break in registration can re-register by creating a profile in the US Soccer Digital Learning Center (or by accessing his or her existing account) and registering for ORC Grassroots Re-Certification listed in the available courses.
