Once you have logged onto the WAReferees website, scroll down until you find the "Clinic Reservation" section. Within this section you will see
the clinics which you may reserve. Within the Recertification area, choose a clinic by clicking on the associated "Reserve Clinic" button.
Below is an example of a Grade 8 referee who lives in District 02-East King County. These are his recertification clinic options within
East King County. By changing the "Clinic Location" drop down, he could see clinics in other parts of the state which he may attend.
Once you've paid for your registration you will be able to take the Online Lessons required for recertification. You may complete the online lessons
before or after the clinic. (Note: Grade 9 recertification only requires the Online Lessons. It does not require an in class clinic.)
On the Member Information page, scroll down to the Clinic Reservation section. There will be an "Online Lessons" button next to the clinic you reserved.
Click this button to begin the Online Lessons. You may stop the lessons at any point between lessons and then pick up where you left off at a different time.
It takes approximately 3 hours to complete the Online Lessons.
On a side note: If you need to transfer to a different clinic, simply click the "Transfer/Cancel Reservation" link next to the clinic you have reserved and you will be
prompted to choose a different clinic.
There are a number of lessons that need to be completed. Click on the "Start the Lesson" button to watch a short video and answer questions about it.
You may not skip through the video or you will not get credit for the lesson. If you miss any questions at the end of the video on the first try you
will not get credit for the lesson. If you don't get credit, you will need to take the lesson over.
Please see the "Online Course Help" for more about taking the online lessons.
After each lesson click the "Push to Update Lesson List" button to refresh the page. If a lesson is completed correctly, it will say

To retake a lesson, click "Retake Lesson".
Known Problems with the Online Lessons and What to do About Them
- "Complete" or "Incomplete" is not Displayed
- Due to synchronization issues, the website may not get a status back from the
USSF lesson module. In this case, "Status Pending (updated in 24-48 hours)" will appear after you complete a lesson. This synchronization problem
will be cleared up each evening about 10PM when system synchronization is completed with USSF. If this problem doesn't clear itself up within 2 days,
please contact WSRCWebmaster@gmail.com
and send in the confirmation email showing you completed the lesson.
- Website Reports an Error at the End of a Lesson
- Lessons entitled "Law 5a - Concussion Awareness" and "Advice to New Referees Refresher" have a compatibility issue between older versions of Adobe's Flash Player
and Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser. To fix this problem you can either download the latest version of Adobe's Flash Player from Adobe's website or
use a different browser such as Google's Chrome or Firefox.
- Taking Lessons Directly from USSF Website Will Not Work
- If you don't use the WAReferees website to take the online lessons there is no guarantee you will get credit for taking the lessons.
Follow the Instructions
- Read and follow the instructions or you may not get credit for the lesson.
Click "Remember Me" and your browser should be able to save you from entering this information for each lesson.
At the end of each lesson, a Green or Red message will tell you if you have completed the lesson. Be sure to wait for the Green message you won't get credit.
Completion of the Online Lessons
Once you have completed all the online lessons it will tell you so in the Clinic Reservation section of the Member Information page.
You must attend the clinic you've signed up for to get recertified, unless you signed up for an "Online Only" clinic.
You may attend the clinic before or after completing the Online Lessons.
