Recertification and Registration

Recertification & Registration

What is the difference between Recertification and Registration?


The Laws change. Updates come out every year. Recertification ensures that you have been given an opportunity to be made aware of the changes and points-of-emphasis for the next year. This means you have met US Soccer's requirement to for continuing education yearly.


You must register with US Soccer every year. Registered means you are current with your annual registration fees and have been issued a badge for that year. Registration is finalzed after ALL steps in the process are complete.

All referees in South Dakota will recertify and register through the US Soccer Learning Center.
