The SC SRC in conjunction with US Soccer has decided to waive ALL fees for 2021 registration. When you register for recertification for 2021 you will pay nothing to either US Soccer or South Carolina. We know that the current health situation has caused financial hardships for many officials across the state and we hope this decision will help everyone a little bit as they plan for the next year.

US Soccer left this decision up to each individual state so if you are receiving this email and your 2020 certification was not done by South Carolina (i.e. you transferred to SC in 2020), you will need to contact your certifying state for information on 2021 recertification.

Please note that recertification for SC for 2021 is not yet available and information on this will be distributed in mid- to late-August. We can, however, tell you that ALL recerts will be conducted online.

Lastly, we are still moving forward with new referee classes. Our classes will look a little different with the classroom portion being done via a webinar.  If you know of anyone 13 years or older who is interested, please direct them to

Again, information on recertification will be distributed in August. Please hold all questions on that until then. If you have other questions please email the SRC at
