The Referee

The Referee’s job is to be the official in charge of the match. He/she is the independent arbiter and manager of the match. A referee’s authority extends to everyone at the field, including players, substitutes, team officials, spectators, and assistant referees.

The first priority for the Referee is to keep the game as safe as possible for the players.  While there is risk in all sports, the referee is responsible for minimizing such risks from field conditions, equipment, spectators, and the players.

The Referee is responsible for enforcing the Laws of the Game in such a way as to keep the game Safe, Fair & Fun.  The referee is expected to interfere with the game as little as possible, avoiding making calls for doubtful and trifling offenses.

Refereeing in AYSO is a challenging and rewarding volunteer experience. Here is an opportunity for you to join the kids on the pitch as they learn to love the “Beautiful Game”. You’ll have a great time and get some exercise too!

AYSO refereeing is available for youth and adult volunteers. Kids as young as 12 years old are permitted to officiate matches in the 8U division.  As the kids enter high school, they have opportunities to manage more challenging matches.
Refereeing in AYSO is a terrific way to help kids learn responsibility and build self-confidence.

If you have any questions about becoming a referee, please contact the Referee Administrator.

Each AYSO referee must meet the following requirements:

  1. Register as a volunteer.
  2. Go to AYSOU and take the Safe Haven and Concussion Awareness classes.
