GLASRA DOES NOT CERTIFY REFEREES.
Annual recertification is required to remain a certified USSF referee.
Certify or Renew as a US Soccer Referee
All US Soccer Referee Certification is conducted through the US Soccer Learning Center.
Please note that the process has now been streamlined to one website.
New Certification requires the online session and one field session.
Recertification is completely online.
Michgian Referee Committee Website has step-by-step instructions on navigating the new US Soccer Learning Center.
When starting as a USSF referee, one begins by taking the Grassroots Referee Course. Visit the Michigan Referee Committee website for instructions and links to become a referee or to recertify as a Grassroots referee.

Regional Referee is an upgraded level obtained by meeting US Soccer requirements that can be found on the Michigan Referee Committee website. There is an annual requirement of passing assessments, fitness tests, and an advanced rules test.
To encourage our members to strive for higher levels, GLASRA will reimburse referees up to $60 for the cost of a successful upgrade assessment.
If you upgraded recently, please reach out to our treasurer to request information on the process for this subsidy.
