Membership instructions and help videos

Officials 18 years of age and older be reminded, you must have completed a current background check, the SafeSport Certification, and upload a current headshot photo..... BEFORE you can process your membership.

Concussion Training: Many states are now requiring officials to go through Concussion Protocol Training.  If you have not completed a concussion course we highly suggest you complete the free HEADS UP online training. Especially if you travel to officiate Regional and National competitions.  The Heads Up Training can now be taken by logging into the USAW membership system and use the "Manage" pull-down menu at the top and click on "Heads Up Concussion".  This certification will then print on your membership card.
