The CSRP typically offers entry-level referee certification late summer through mid-December. Candidates must be 13 by the following June to participate in the program.
Generally, the CSRP program consists of a series of online webinars and a full day of instruction/review. Candidates who pass a 100-question, multiple choice test at the end of the in-person session earn USSF certification.
Each fall, officials must re-certify by Nov. 30 for the following year. Any referee missing the recertification deadline must go through the certification process from the beginning.
