Non-Minnesota Residents Have Exceptions, Other Requirements
Updated Oct 21, 2012
If you are non-resident of Minnesota, you need to check on any special requirements for using the MNSRC website for your 2013 USSF registration! MNSRC works with neighboring states to provide training, but your payment structure and requirements may be different from referees who will register as Minnesota officials.
Please make sure you read the instructions for both non-Minnesota residents registering as Minnesota officials or the instructions for Minnesota residents (such as college students in school out of state) planning to complete certification requirements in another state program!!!
