We realize there are many questions related to these changes and what to expect for certification. The majority of our members fall into the ‘Grassroots Referee’ category for which there is some high level information in this announcement from the US Soccer Referee Program.

We together with you are awaiting details from US Soccer and our state association which we hope will be delivered to us in late June.
