Referee Recertification     

Referee recertification typically takes place after July through August and November through March. If you became a new official after July through December, you do not need to recertify until the following year. Otherwise, to work games you need to recertify annually.

What if you haven't recertified in a few years. According to US Soccer policy, you can have up to four years between being certified without the need to take the course over again.

Online recertification, while some states will allow for this, ASOA does not feel it is beneficial for referee development to recertify online. In order to be assigned local games, you must attend a rules clinic in person.

Upgrading, like recertification, ASOA needs for you to do this at a in person upgrade clinic.
