All USSF Referees must earn a minimum of five (5) hours of In-Service Training annually to renew their license with USSF. This can be accomplished by attending several of the Monthly Clinics. In Howard County these monthly clinics are held on the 3rd Thursday night of the month.

We will be conducting several Entry Level Courses in the Spring 2015. 

These courses will follow the new format where students will be expected to complete Online Sessions and attend a Classroom & Field Session. After completing both the student will take an Online Exam to finish their requirements and get their referee badge. I have submitted the following course dates:

Course: 11705-G8-S2

22 February & 1 March 2015 (08:30 to 5:30pm) Entry Level Course

Course: 11706-G8-S2

14 March & 15 March 2015 (08:30am to 5:30pm) Entry Level Course


We will be teaching the Grade 9 Recreational Referee Course formally know as the NCSL & WAGS STAR Certification. This One Day Course is planned for Sunday March 22, 2015 from 8:30am to 5:30pm and requires the completion of an Online Session first.

Course: 11704-G9-1S

22 March 2015 (08:30am to 5:30pm) Recreational Referee Course aka STAR Course.


Complete details will be available soon and the courses will be open for Registration. Go to “Spring 2015 Referee Courses” or “Grade 9 Recreational” for the STAR Certification for details on the new format.
