Recertification Steps for Grassroots Referees

(formerly known as Grades 7, 8, & 9)

These steps are for all returning Grassroots Referees.

1. On our Google Calendar, click the Recertification Grassroots course you would like to attend in person. At the bottom, click "More Details." Then, scroll down on the new window and click the link at the bottom to register for the in-person course.

2. Using the link in the Google Calendar (DO NOT GO DIRECTLY to the Learning Center.) Create a US Soccer profile on their online Learning Center. Use the referee's email address, do NOT use a parent/guardian's email address. This is how we will communicate with our referees and for other reasons. If parents use their own email address it will make things more difficult with the registration process.

3. Complete a 4.5 hour e-learning Grassroots Level experience on US Soccer's online Learning Center. The exact link will be posted on our Google Calendar in the details portion for each clinic. This course is about four hours AND musts be completed before attending the in-person portion of the clinic. There are several parts to this online course. Once you log in, click on the "Assignments" tab. There you will see the Online Grassroots Referee Course, SafeSport Training, Introduction to Safe and Healthy Playing Environments, and Grassroots Referee Recertification Quiz. Questions from the test are taken directly from those modules.

4. Click on the "Course Details" tab and complete the UYSA (Utah Youth Soccer Association) presentation (39 minutes) and test (30 questions).

5. For the in-person portion of the certification, please dress for "field session" type activities. Meaning, we will be on a field and practicing referee signals and mechanics. Please bring your whistle, yellow and red cards, flags, if you have them, as well as a water bottle.

6. Attend the entire 4 hours of a Recertification GRASSROOTS CLINIC and participate in the field session activities to receive your referee badge.
