Referee Information

2019 Referee Refresher Materials can be found by following this link.  There are 3 files - one is a video covering the 10U Build-Out Line and 10U/12U PDI guidance.  The other two are PowerPoint decks - one is administrative information (the one named 2019 Referee Refresher), which the other is the full (and I do mean full) review of the Laws Of The Game, including AYSO-applicable interpretations.  Please download this last one as it's too large to view in your browser.

Refereeing is NOT just for Dads -- it's a great way for Moms, and even siblings, to get involved in the sport!

The AYSO National Referee Program has 5 levels of referee certifications.  If you are a new referee you will need either the U-8 Official or Regional Referee training depending on your child’s playing level.  The remaining certification levels build progressively toward the skills needed for the higher age-group matches.  For details on each certification level – see the corresponding section following the table.

The table below shows the certification level desired for each age-group.  Simply find your current level in the left-hand column, the follow the row across until it intersects with the column representing your child’s playing level.

Training Provided by Regions 43/45 in Los Altos/Mountain View

Referee training typically begins after teams have been formed (so that you know which team your child is on, and which team you'll be volunteering to help) in late August.  We offer 1 or 2 of each of the 2 entry-level sessions (U-8 Official and Basic/Regional Referee) and nearby regions offer similar training on different dates to make it easy to get trained.  See the calendar below for local course offerings.
