Becoming a 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.

We encourage your participation, volunteer today!


If they have not already taken the required steps to get certified, please get them going ASAP:
1.  Register on Blue Sombrero as a Referee Volunteer.  May have to wait a few days for AYSO National to approve their background checks
2.  Sign up for one of our Ladera Ranch classes
3)  Take the online Safe Haven and Concussion Awareness Class.
