This year, recertification may be done online this year through the Nevada State Soccer Referee Committee website. Here is what you need to do:
For those wishing to recertify in person (i.e. the old way), you may do so. Arrangements for recertifying in person will take place on specific dates only. You will need to fill out your application, make payment (check or money order payable to NVSSRC, no cash), and then take and pass your test. Information on these opportunities will be posted on the website and distributed through email.
Badges will be distributed through instructors designated by the SRC when the recertification process has been completed. To receive your badge, you will need to provide proof that you have paid your fee to US Soccer (keep the email receipt they will send to you) and verification that you have received a passing score on the test for your referee grade. This can be found through your referee account at NVSSR.com by clicking on the 'My Exams' tab and printing the page that shows your test with its score. Dates for badge pickup will be posted to the website and sent through via general email to all referees.
Any questions can be directed to Greg West at email@example.com
