Hello! If you're reading this page, you're either a referee, or are pondering the idea of becoming a referee. We thank you for your time and dedication to helping not only our program, but all the kids of our community in our program who depend on us referees in keeping their games safe and fun! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Below are announcements regarding some of the programs that are active or that we are in the process of preparing for.



Thinking of Becoming a Referee?

Why should you become an AYSO Referee? Because we need you to help keep our games safe, fair and fun. We can't have games without referees. More importantly, it's rewarding and working with kids is great fun! 

Referees are critical to soccer - the game can't be played without them. The referee's job is to be the official in charge of the game. He is the independent arbiter and manager of the game. Her authority extends to everyone at the field, including players, substitutes, team officials, spectators, and even assistant referees. 

The referee's No. 1 one concern 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 and fun for everyone: the players, the coaches, the spectators and themselves. He interferes with the game as little as possible, avoiding making calls for doubtful and trifling offenses. Referees only make calls for offenses they are sure occurred. 

We want our kids to continue to play, and they keep playing as long as it is fun. Referees learn that fun soccer varies from age group to age group of players. 

Contact our Referee Administrator, Jeff Garner, or our Regional Commissioner, Albert Ramirez, if you are ready to become a referee.
