Referees Needed


Have you ever watched a soccer referee and thought...
Here is your chance.

There are many benefits to being an AYSO referee:
  • Referee as few or as many games as you want. You choose your own schedule.
  • Free training. AYSO will teach you everything you need to know.
  • Get free uniforms and supplies. AYSO provides you with everything you need.
  • Mentoring available. AYSO has a mentoring program to help you, if needed.
  • High School students can use the time as community service.
  • On top of these benefits, being an AYSO referee is FUN!

   AYSO is an all-volunteer run organization dedicated to youth development. Referees play a vital role in keeping matches safe, fair and fun. We are looking for volunteers to join our program. You don’t need to be a soccer expert—just willing to learn.

If you are interested in becoming a referee or would like more information, please contact:

Next class will be THURSDAY September 2, 2021 from 5pm-830pm, dinner included.  You'll first take the super easy online course, and then come to our 4-hour class.  Instructions on how to register for the online course and the in-person part of the class is below.

Here’s how to join.


   To become an AYSO referee, you must be a current AYSO volunteer.  For help on signing up to be a volunteer, scroll to the bottom of this page for instructions. You must first have a Blue Sombrero account, then sign up as a volunteer, then you can login to AYSOu for training.


   There are a lot of opportunities for online or in-person training. You enroll in these courses in AYSO University. Your login credentials are the ones you set up when you registered as a volunteer (in step 1). To see a list of local training opportunities click here.

   To sign up for classes in AYSO University, it may help to follow their tutorial.  Once logged in, click the My Courses tab.  Then click the Open button next to How-Tos For Volunteers, then click Launch and read through the tutorial.

     On-Line Companion Classes –  At this time, a Regional On-Line Class is offered through AYSOU.  Use the on-line course to learn the material and then use the classroom session for review and clarification.  You MUST take the online course before coming to the Companion in-person course if you want to be an official referee.  The in-person course is only 4 hours now!

All AYSO volunteers are required to take Safe Haven training. This is a free online course in AYSO University. Your login credentials are the ones you set up when you registered as a volunteer (in step 1).

We will match you with an experienced referee who will help you get comfortable on the pitch.


Volunteers are the life blood of AYSO. Please volunteer to help us fulfill our vision to provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives!


1. There are two ways to start the volunteer registration process. One is to complete volunteer registration after e-signing your child's soccer registration form. You will be taken to the volunteer position selection screen. Go to step 2.

If you do not register as a volunteer while completing your child's registration, you can register at a later time by logging back in to your Blue Sombrero account. 

Once you are logged in, you can either click the "Volunteer" button on the left or the "Volunteer Opportunities" button at the top of the page:

2. At the position selection screen, choose a role, then click continue at the bottom of the page, then click "Continue". You may choose multiple roles. (We always need more coaches and referees! Training is free!) 

3. Confirm you wish to volunteer for the role:

4. Complete the volunteer information form. Note that at the references section there are two references to complete. The first reference is a work reference. The second reference is a personal reference that is different than your work reference.

5. Proceed to the electronic signature page. You must check the "I agree to use an electronic signature" box and select the FIRST radio button as an adult, then type your name as your "signature":
