Referees


Law #5

Referees are as critical to soccer as players and coaches. In AYSO, the game can’t be played if there aren’t enough referees. It’s most common for a volunteer to begin their AYSO referee career by refereeing their own child’s game. However, as they learn the rules, develop their own techniques for managing players, coaches and fans, and gain an appreciation for how important the role of the referee is to a fun, fair and safe soccer experience, they often find it very rewarding to expand their knowledge and experience through AYSO’s advanced training and certification process. AYSO’s referee training is considered some of the best in the U.S. and includes both in-person courses in your community and online opportunities. Soccer knowledge is a plus, but is certainly not required. The AYSO referee training will give you all you need to know to have a terrific experience on the field.

All AYSO Referees are Volunteers. These are parents, siblings, family friends or neighbors who want to help make the AYSO Soccer experience Safe, Fun, Fair and Instructional. Help support all our volunteers by being positive, encouraging and professional. Remember, we are setting the example in front of all AYSO players.
