Space is limited and advance registration at AYSOU.org is required, which first requires volunteer registration on the WSSL.org website and a completed background check for adults.
Young people aged 10 years and over, including Core and Travel soccer players and their siblings, and are very welcome to attend referee classes, and can gain community service credit for their time in class and refereeing on the field. The Teen Referee program welcomes new members and will make sure that you have fun as well as serving the league!
Volunteer registration for young people is a little different from that for parent volunteers. Go here for Teen Referee instructions.
More information about training can be found here.
How to Register for a Referee Class
These are the steps that need to be completed to register for a course. Some of them only need to be done once, if they're done properly. Please try to do these in order. It will cut down on problems and having to repeat any of these steps.
Complete Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness and Regional Referee Companion Courses Online at AYSOU.org
For Safe Haven and Regional Referee Courses, all modules for each course must be taken for the course to be considered complete. Please note that the online Regional Referee course is not a substitute for the in person class. Its aim is to get new referees up to speed so they can attend the in-person Regional Referee class without first attending the U-8 Official class.
