You pay this registration fee when you register for a clinic.
The USSF/STSR registration year is July 1st through June 30th.
The USSF Badge is good from January 1st through Dec 31st in the year stated on the badge.

Uniform Cost

Soccer Referee uniforms can be obtained from online referee supply stores or from your local soccer equipment store.
There is usually a referee "starter kit" that can be purchased which includes socks, shorts, shirt, whistle, flags, velcro patch and a game report book for about $60.
You should purchase this before you officiate your first game.
