Registration for 2018 in Iowa is OPEN!


The State Referee Registrar (SRR), Jim Albertson, has opened the 2018 Registration window with US Soccer for all Iowa Referees. Registration will be open for 3 months running from August 1 to November 1.

After November 1, Registration will be CLOSED so that the Iowa Referee Committee (IRC) can conduct Winter planning activities, i.e., the Terry Vaughn Referee Academy & Advanced Clinic, US Soccer Referee Program Workshop, Winter / Spring Entry-Level Referee Courses, et al.

Detailed instructions for how to register for 2018 using your RefLink Account can be found by reading How to Register for 2018. Per those instructions, you can pay your annual registration fees either by mail with a Check or online via Credit Card. After your Registration is approved and payment processed by the Registrar, you will receive a 2018 Badge in the mail mid to late Winter.

If you are unable to register because you need continuing education hours, go to Recertification Training and complete the online 2017-2018 Referee Recertification Module.

PLEASE NOTE: Per US Soccer, you will no longer receive your Badge from Chicago!

In order to receive a 2018 Badge, you MUST send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Jim Albertson
IRC Registrar
3710  24th Ave.
Marion, IA
52302

ATTN: 2018 Registration

REMEMBER: The earlier you register, the sooner you will receive your Badge. If you register late, outside the window, you may not receive a 2018 Badge.

REGISTRATION IS A TWO-PART PROCESS — YOU HAVE TO:
(1) LOGON TO YOUR REFLINK ACCOUNT AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED
(2) PAY YOUR REGISTRATION FEES

Young up and coming referees of Iowa, do you see yourself in this photo in the near future?

This is the Region 2 Referee Delegation to the US Youth Soccer National Championships held this past week in Frisco, TX — all chosen from performances at the Regional Championships, where the Iowa Delegation attending were selected based on their performances at the Iowa State Cup.

Now again I ask, who sees themselves in this picture? Several referees in this photo just refereed National Championship matches!
