2. Once you have the link, log into your US Soccer profile on their online Learning Center. If you do not know your account information, please contact Holly at DO NOT CREATE YOUR OWN ACCOUNT!!! Use the referee's email address that they registered with in the past. Do NOT use a parent/guardian's email address as that will not let you in to the Learning Center. This is how we will communicate with our referees and for other reasons.
