If VSOA members want to join the USSF Vermont referee group, they will have a couple of options.
1. If any VSOA member has been a USSF referee in the past 5 years then they can register to take a Recertification Course
2. If any VSOA member has never been a USSF referee or it's been longer than 5 years, then they will need to register to attend a Referee Grade 8 course.
