Referee Training

Volunteer to serve as a referee for our upcoming playing year known officially as MY2022 as our year, similar to your child’s school year, begins in September of 2021.
In AYSO we need referees to officiate our 10U and higher division games on Saturdays.
As a new referee, our goal is to prepare you to serve as both assistant and center referees for your child’s game.We hope you will enjoy this activity and pitch in with another game on Saturdays.
The Referee role in AYSO will accommodate YOUR schedule; there may be a some game days you are away or working or  for whatever reason you cannot be at our fields that Saturday. But our hope is you will so enjoy your new skills that we will see you more weeks than not.

In order to referee you do need to complete some training.
There are two online courses you will do on your own time and then a four hour companion live class held in our regional office.
The online courses are found on AYSOU. You will log in with the same login name and password you used on our Region 418 website to register as a volunteer.
You will need to complete the online AYSO'S SAFE HAVEN course, CDC: Concussion Course, and the REGIONAL REFEREE COURSE, all found in the My Courses tab on the AYSOU site.
