New Registration Process

As of 1 July 2015, we will be registering with USSF and doing background checks using the Arbiter Sports Registration system. You WILL NOT use the USSOCCER Registration system. This means you only need to go to one location to register and pay for USSF as well as submitting your information for a background check.

To do this, log into Arbiter Sports as you would normally as an official. Click ALYS CENTRAL HUB tab in the upper right. Then click the Registration Tab on the black line. Make sure you select the correct registration. ONLY brand new officials who have NEVER registered before should use the New Officials registration link. All others will use the link for their appropriate grade.

If you are an Assignor, Assessor, or Instructor you will have to register for each one individually, according to your USSF Grade.

Once you have selected your registration grade complete, at a minimum, all required input and then at the end pay your registration fee. This will be done annually.

National Officials, also tracked as Referees and Assistant Referees, will be designated as Grade 4 National Officials for 2015.

The 2015 selection and certification process will be processed in two phases, beginning with the administrative requirements. The window for completing the administrative requirements will open on Sept. 1 and close on Nov. 30.
