Welcome To AYSO 111 Referee!

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.

Youth Referee Testimonial

"My son misses refereeing already and I can see now how much self esteem and confidence he had when he was doing it. He needs something that he feels he can help others out and this has been a miracle that has worked. Since he has stopped refereeing I noticed that his self confidence has gone down… thanks for all you do to volunteer for AYSO. You have changed his life for the better and you may never get a chance to fully see what your impact has had on his life. Words can’t explain how much I appreciate that."
— Shawn (Youth Referee Parent)
