MESSAGE FROM THE SDA....
There appears to be some confusion on 2015 recertification assessment requirements for grade 6 (State) referees. Information has been sent out since early 2014 from US Soccer in their monthly Referee Department Updates.
To reiterate the current policy - 2 maintenance assessments (with a passing score) are required annually for recertification. One must be on an adult Division 2 game or higher. All games must be a minimum of 40 minute halves. A minimum of 30 days between assessments is required, unless the game was considered to be "non-ratable" by the assessor. In those cases, the next assessment may be the next day.
For this year only, I am waiving the 30 day requirement between games and will reduce it to 14 days. Please note, this is for this year only. All assessments in 2015 for 2016 registration must have a minimum of 30 days in between.
