Referee FAQ

Why does AYSO need volunteer referees?

AYSO is a 100% volunteer run organization.  The majority of the volunteers in Region 2 are referees!  They help ensure that our players have a great soccer experience. Along with coaching, refereeing is a great way to help out your team.  Our games only take place because of our volunteer referees.

How do I become an AYSO referee?
Referees must complete all standard AYSO volunteer requirements in addition to attending an in-person Region Referee course.  Region 2 runs Regional Referee courses each season and there are many courses offered in nearby cities.  Please see the Referee section of the website for more details or contact the Regional Referee Administrator: [email protected]

Where do I get a referee uniform?
Region 2 provides referees with their uniform and referee gear.

Is prior soccer experience or knowledge necessary?
Not al all!  While being familiar with soccer helps, many of our referees, including some of our veteran referees, started out without any soccer experience.

Can kids referee?
Absolutely!  Region 2 encourages youths to participate in our referee program.  It is a great way to learn responsibility and build a better understanding of the game.  Youth referees must be 12 years or older and be at least one division older than the division they are planning to referee in (i.e. 14U player may referee for a 12U game).
