The Ohio North State Referee Committee has contracted with to handle referee registration.  This will include not only the USSF and clinic registration for referees but also online training and testing.

Please note, as stated before, we have a brand new registration system which includes the Risk Management and now includes the annual test. For complete instructions for this go to and on the left menu panel select Referee Registration. Scroll down a little to find “Current Referees”. This will walk you through the registration process and what you need to do to complete the testing. Also, please note DO NOT TRY TO REGISTER USING  But you must use your same login (usually your 16-digit USSF number preceded by an ”R”) and password (usually your LAST name). If you forgot them (or it doesn’t work) use the “FORGOT” functions on the new system to retrieve them.  This system works flawlessly if you follow the instructions to the letter.

Also, the testing takes about 3 hours total as there are teaching instructions included and you MUST have this completed and bring your printed certificate of passing score with you. DO NOT wait until the day of the class to try and register.  By completing this portion it will cut down on the amount of in-service hours required in the face to face classroom (only two hours necessary).  At this time, you will receive your law book & badge.

Please also take some time to review the “Advice to Referees on the Laws of the Game”.

You must complete the test and online portion of instruction prior to attending the clinic (you can only attend the clinic that you sign up for), and bring all of your paperwork.  If you have not completed and passed your test and requirements you will not be able to recertify at this clinic.  No exceptions!
