2018 Recertification


Soccer Referees of Eastern Pennsylvania,

Congratulations to those who successfully completed the requirements to referee in 2017!

In light of the recent changes to the Laws of the Game, and in order to provide you with more accurate, relevant and timely information, we are improving our process to recertify referees.



To register for 2018, referees should satisfy the following requirements:

1)    In order to stay up to date on current USSF and EPA rules and directives:

                                                    i.     Attend an Intermediate (grades 8, 9 and emeritus) or Advance (grades 7 and above) Clinic

                                                  ii.     Check EPSARC.org_Recertification_Clinics for dates & registration 

2)    Ensure your Background Clearances are up to date

                                                    i.     Currently clearances are good for 5 years from the date of issuance 

3)    Complete Online Prerequisite Modules

                                                    i.     Laws 11, 12, 13, 14

                 4) Pass the online refresher test with a score of 80% or better (link to be set up later this summer)

5)    Pass the fitness test

                                                    i.     Current referee Grades 5, 6, and 7, and those wishing to upgrade
