Annual USSF Registration – Referees need to be registered with the US Soccer Federation in order to officiate games for Mustang. The registration year runs from August 1 through June 30. For example, to receive your 2015 badge, you must submit your renewal between August 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. The US Soccer Federation does NOT send reminders to renew your registration, and if you fail to renew you could be required to take a recertification class before you can renew, so do not let it lapse! All Grade 8 referees are strongly urged to renew using the online system. Grade 7 and below referees must submit the required materials per the instructions on the Cal North Referee Association (CNRA) web site.
