Referee Certification Classes

 Are you interested in becoming a certified referee? If so, all you need to do is attend a training class to become certified.  

NEW REFEREE Class Registration   

To sign up for the new referee certification class (Entry Level R-9 for 14 year old or younger OR Entry Level R-8 for 15 year old and older) go to and create a login by selecting the “login” tab (left side of page) and then select the green tab “new user” then select “I have never been registered” to create your account.

After you have created your login account go back the GAReferees home page and select “sign up for classes”; then select “Entry Course” (R9).  You may attend any class at any club – just find one that fits your schedule.     

Current Referees – Referees need to be recertified each calendar year.  If you have a 2018 Badge you are certified for the entire year and are good to go this upcoming Spring 2018 season.  Below is information regarding classes you might be interested in taking. 

R8 and R9 Recertification Class (for current referees) – If you want to get your 2018 certification or have an expired (previous year) certification you need to attend a recertification class.  Follow the instructions above and signup for the “Annual Recertification Course for R9 & R8”. 

BRIDGE CLASS - The Bridge Class is no longer available.  Those R9 referees 15 years old (or older) should upgrade to an R8 by taking the R8 Class. 

If you have trouble signing up please contact the GSSA office at 770-452-0505 for assistance. 

For any other questions feel free to contact me at 678-548-3004.
