The registration tool for Refresher courses is active.

Registered referees just need to log into their Ref Centre account at www.refcentre.com and you will find the Refresher Course tool under the Registration menu item. There are only a couple of options for courses at this time as a number of requested courses are still to be approved as instructors are confirmed. Please check back if you do not find a course date or location that works for you as courses will be added daily as they are approved. All registrations for approved refresher courses must be done through your new Ref Centre account and only the participants in these courses will be added to the official ASA referee database. This means you need to have registered, paid and completed the online test and take a refresher. This includes all of our mini referees from last year. ASA has a strict policy that states only properly registered referees can be used.
