Registration with US Soccer for 2015 certification is now open on the MNSRC website, www.minnesotasrc.com.
As with last year, you will have to pay your registration fee, then take your test, then complete online requirements before registering for a course. We have made some changes to the process to remove some of the challenges we have encountered.
First, when paying, please make sure the address for your card matches that on your card statement exactly. If it does not match, there is a good chance the site will reject the card. This is a security measure to prevent credit card theft; it may be frustrating, but it is implemented to protect your privacy.
Second, the full clinic list will be available for viewing this year from the start. You do not have to be logged in or have paid your registration fees to view the list. However, you will have to have registered for a clinic when you show up to it, or you will be turned away, so please be sure to complete all pre-class tasks before arriving for a clinic. Dozens of people were turned away last year when they assumed they could just show up and get their badge. We are quite serious in how we plan to enforce this requirement.
