Online Referee Recertification for 2014

This year, recertification may be done online this year through the Nevada State Soccer Referee Committee website.  Here is what you need to do:

  1. Go to www.nvssr.com.  This is the website for the Nevada State Soccer Referee Committee.  Register with the committee by establishing a 'profile'.  There will be a time lag for the site to sync with US Soccer with regard to your referee grade.  Wait at least 12 hours to test until that time lag has passed.
  2. Once your profile has been established, you should go to the "Registration" tab/drop down window and click 'current referee'
  3. Begin the recertification process.  There are two steps--payment and the examination for your particular grade.  Please pay first and THEN take the test for your particular grade.  During the payment stage, if you are prompted to pick a referee clinic, click either choice despite that they are located in Las Vegas.  It is a glitch in the system and will be overridden on the administrative end.  FYI, you will need your USSF referee ID number to register/make payment.  Your username is your ID number (found on the card mailed to you by US Soccer) with an 'r' in front of it.
  4. While completion of course modules online is not being required at this time, it would be a good refresher to work through the modules for your particular referee grade prior to taking your test.
