                                                              2020/2021 RE-CERT CLASSES

Here is a complete listing of all the 2020 re cert classes that will be held this year.  Please make sure you attend one so that you can continue to referee this fall.

 

If you have a 2020 patch, then this re cert is free to you, so please do not register and pay again.  If you have a 2020 patch, please attend one of these re certs and let your assignor know.  There are many new rule changes that will be discussed.

If you have a 2019 patch then you will need to attend, register and pay for the re cert, ($70.00) or you can’t referee in the fall. If you are a 2019 grade 9 referee, then please take the 2021 grade 8 upgrade class.  This will cover the rule changes, serve as your re cert, and cost the same.   USSF has eliminated the grade 9 classification and therefore all referees must be certified to be an assistant referee and center referee.  We will not be offering any more grade 9 classes. 

If you are a 2020 grade 9 referee then please attend the grade 8 upgrade class (same cost as the re cert, $70.00).  However, if you take the grade 8 upgrade class before June 1st, you will have to pay $70.00 for the class.  If you take the 2021 Grade 8 upgrade class after June 1st, you still pay $70.00 and your 2021 re cert is free.

 

The USSF year runs July 1st to June 30th. This year we would like to have all grade 9 referees upgrade to a grade 8 or center referee.  USSF has eliminated the grade 9 classification and therefore all referees must be certified to be an assistant referee and center referee.  We will not be offering any more grade 9 classes.  Remember, if you don’t want to do centers, then just let your assignor know and they will assign you as assistant referees only, your choice.

If you have any questions, please contact Peter LeVasseur at: pjlevasseur@metrocast.net
