    Tom, when can we start registering for national camps. That way we can have it penciled in on our summer schedules.

    • Tom Richardson Tom Richardson says:

      Goal is to have registration open by April 2 on NISOA Central Hub. An e-mail announcement will go out to all NR’s.

    • Lance Van Haitsma Lance VanHaitsma says:


      You should have received an email by now notifying you that registration for 2018 NISOA National Referee Academies is now open.

      Please go onto the NISOA Central Hub on Arbiter Sports for registration.

      Thank You

      Fact sheets have been posted above for 8 of the 12 NRP Academy Sites. Once details are finalized for the remaining 4 sites, they will be posted accordingly

      Thank you for your patience

    For verification of the fitness test, can our USSF LAC verify that we ran the fitness test? Or does it have to be from our NISOA Chapter? Also, if we ran the FIFA Men’s AR test rather than the specific NISOA/USSF State Referee fitness test, does that still qualify?

    • Tom Richardson Tom Richardson says:

      Your LAC or someone from your local chapter that witnessed your PFT performance will suffice.
