In AYSO, EACH U10 team MUST provide a trained referee. All our referees (just like our coaches) are volunteers, and most are parents of current players. We have “pool” referees: these are volunteers who continue to referee even after their children no longer play for AYSO; they referee older age groups and when available fill in on days that parents can't referee. During the SPRING 2016 season, “pool” referees will only be assigned to games where at least one team has provided a referee. If there is no volunteer from either team, the game will not have a trained referee.
For more information, contact your child's coach or the Referee Administrator at email@example.com.
Volunteering as a referee provides a great way for those who want to help their child's team but need flexible schedules: referee only as many games as your schedule permits. Classroom training courses for U08 Official and U10 Basic Referees are generally held at the AYSO office at 4507 N. Ravenswood.
Completion of the AYSO On-Line Referee Training course before attending class is required; please see information about the on-line course below. Higher-level courses are held either in the Region or outside the Region but within Area D.
|We welcome new and prospective referees! Regularly scheduled pre-season classes have been completed. Please contact the Referee Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and to set up mid-season training sessions.||Basic (U10) Referee Online Companion Course|
