FOR RECERT AND ENTRY-LEVEL/BRIDGE
ALL referees, regardless of age, gender, or nationality, MUST register and pay on-line for recertification. NO REGISTRATIONS OR PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED ON-SITE. On-line payments should be made by the posted cut-off date and time. The State Referee Administration reserves the right to refuse to admit to the clinic those referees whose payments are made after the posted cut-off date and time. Referees MUST bring their Online Payment Acknowledgment email to check-in.
Referees who have not taken the on-line test or attempted and failed the on-line test three times MUST ALSO ATTEND the recertification clinic. These remaining referees MUST CHECK IN with clinic staff before leaving the classroom in order to substantiate their attendance at the clinic. If necessary, the on-line test access for these students will be re-set so that they may continue to work on passing the test. Upon successful completion of the on-line test, referees must contact Jane Fallon who will verify results and arrange to have a badge mailed.
State referees will be required to re-take the on-line test appropriate to their Grade level as many times as necessary to pass. If more than three attempts are required, you may contact email@example.com to re-set your access to the test web site.
ENTRY-LEVEL AND BRIDGE CLASSES
Students who wish to attend an entry-level class, MUST create a referee profile, register and pay ON-LINE prior to the posted cut-off date and time. Students who wish to attend a Bridge class, MUST register and pay ON-LINE prior to the posted cut-off date and time. The Lead Instructor has discretion to permit a student to go create a referee profile and/or register and pay ON-LINE prior to the end of the day for a one-day class or before the start of the second day of class for a class that meets on more than one day. Exercising this option is at the sole discretion of the Lead Instructor except that it shall not be done in a discriminatory manner, but based on whatever factors the Lead Instructor deems appropriate to consider, including, but not limited to, what is in the best interest of the students, sponsoring organization, and state referee administration as well as any rules or regulations of the venue providers.
Students must attend the prescribed number of hours of instruction as well as pass the appropriate exam. The Lead Instructor makes the final determination of whether the appropriate number of hours of instruction were attended and whether the student attained a passing grade on the exam. The final determination is guided by the USSF requirements for the entry-level class in question.
Students who have registered and paid, attended the required number of hours of instruction, and passed the appropriate exam will receive a certificate of completion and a badge for the appropriate Grade level.
The Lead Instructor will submit to the State Registrar within 7 days of the last day of class, a class roster indicating attendance, any payments made at the class, and written test results, if any.
The State Registrar will enter State Approvals of registrations within 7 days of receipt from the Lead Instructor.
USSF should mail a referee packet including a USSF ID card to the referee within 4-6 weeks. If a packet does not arrive in the mail within the expected time frame, check your referee profile to verify that your mailing address is correct. Then, contact Jane Fallon, State Registrar, to arrange for a re-send.
RESCHEDULES OR REFUNDS
Referees who fail to show for the clinic to which they have registered, must contact Jane Fallon, State Registrar, to be moved to another clinic. Should you determine that you do not wish to attend a clinic, refunds may be requested by contacting Jane Fallon who will arrange for USSF to refund ONLY the USSF fee. Clinic fees are nonrefundable.
