FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT RECERTIFICATION:

1.  If I have a 2025 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 2024/2025 USSF year and are already registered.  The re cert clinic is free.  THE CLINIC THAT YOU NEED IS A SUPPLEMENTAL CLINIC. (2025 supplemental Zoom) These are only for registered referees who took a class last fall and are already registered with US Soccer.  It 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 cannot referee unless your name is on this data base.
 

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

Contact Peter LeVasseur - pjhl.1949@gmail.com    he will have it for you or will give you directions on how to obtain the ID number. ALSO you can find instructions on how to find your ID on this web site under the referee tab/Referee USSF  ID # Location 

4.  Where do I get my patch??

When you register on OMS and have completed all the requirements and attended the Zoom class, the badge will be sent to you.  Make sure all contact information is up to date.
