                                  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT RECERTIFICATION:

1.  If I have a 2020 patch do I have to attend a re certification clinic?

 Yes, However you do NOT have to pay because you attended a referee class during the 2018/2019  USSF year and are already registered.  The re cert clinic is free.

2.  Why do I need to attend this clinic every year?

During this time we discuss the new rule changes, review other game situations, and review signals, calls, and fouls and misconducts.  By attending the clinic your name also gets put on the Soccer Maine Referee data base of approved referees.  You can not referee unless your name is on this data base.
 

3.  Where do I get my USSF ID# to register with USSF?

Contact Peter LeVasseur { pjlevasseur@metrocast.net } he  will have it for you or will give you directions on how to obtain the ID number..

4.  Where do I get my patch??

When you register on Game Officials and have completed all the requirements you will either receive your patch at the end of your class or it will be sent to you for 2020.
