How to Become a Referee

Step 1: Register as a volunteer in the AYSO National database through www.ayso120.org. Click “Register Now” and sign up as a Volunteer. If you are earning referee points for your child's team under volunteer opportunities click the appropriate program and division. If you are a youth referee or do not have a child in the program under volunteer opportunities select 2022-2023 Referee.  Print a copy of your completed volunteer form for your files and be sure to submit the background check for Sterling Volunteers.

Step 2: Once a registered volunteer click on the Volunteer page in your profile and click on AYSOU. In AYSOU go to the Training Library and click on Refereeing and take the Regional Referee - Online + In-Person Companion Course (2 Part Bundle). You can come to the in person referee class once you have completed this training. We will post the in-person AYSO Region 120 referee training dates in August 2022.  If you want to take the course sooner email [email protected] 

Step 3: To become a certified volunteer you will also need to complete the additional requirements listed on your volunteer profile; SafeSport, AYSO Safe Haven, Sudden Cardiac Arrest and CDC Concussion Awareness. From the volunteer page in your profile click on AYSOU, go to the Training Library and click on Safe Haven. You can take most of the classes as chapters so you can do the training in smaller bites. To take the SafeSport Training go to your volunteer page and click the box next to SafeSport and then scroll to the bottom and click renew and update. Be sure your pop-up blockers are disabled since this will take you to a new page.

Step 4: To become a trained Regional Referee you need to complete the 3 hour in-person "Regional Referee Online Companion Course". In AYSOU click on Training Event; In the top row x out of Region 120, put Costa Mesa in Location and click on Costa Mesa, CA 92626, USA  under courses put in Referee and click on Regional Referee - Online + In-Person Companion Course (2 Part Bundle) this will show you all of the local 3 hour in person Companion Referee Courses. Click on the course that works best for you and click Enroll. The instructor will send you an email reminder a few days before the class you registered to (using the email address you entered in www.ayso120.org). Attend the class you signed up for. A record of your attendance will be entered into the AYSO National database. AYSO Region 120 will reimburse fees for referee training as long as the fees are pre-approved by Pedro Echegaray our Referee Administrator. You can contact Pedro at [email protected]

Step 5: Complete the LiveScan fingerprint process for AYSO. You should receive an email with instructions and a free coupon code. You only need to be fingerprinted one time as an AYSO Volunteer.
