CNRA is pleased to announce that for the duration of the COVID-19 shelter-in-place recommendation, the field session requirement for new referees can now be completed via a new Digital Field Session. This web-based training will take approximately 75 minutes to complete, and will cover much of the same instruction that is provided at the in-person field sessions.
Referees who have completed the classroom learning in the U.S. Soccer Learning Center can now complete their registration requirements by participating in one of these web-based training sessions. These referees who still have to complete the field session will receive an email from the Entry-Level Program Coordinator announcing dates for the digital field sessions to take place.
The digital program will be offered to complete the new referee certification process for all referees until the shelter-in-place order is lifted and large public gatherings are possible.
If you have any questions, please contact Carlos Ledesma at: firstname.lastname@example.org
