Below is the link to the Vermont Soccer Association Webpage for Referees.  On the page there are links to the dates they have available for recertification and certification courses with locations and how to register.
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.
If anyone has any questions, they can contact Steve Lunna slunna@comcast.net
