Referee Training Schedule Spring 2016
1/9/2016

Referees, Coaches, Team Parents, Volunteers and even U14/U19 players are welcome to attend the upcoming referee or assistant referee trainings. Anyone who wants to learn the Laws of the game are welcome to attend and will not be pressured into refereeing games if they have no intention of doing so.

To be a referee, however, training is mandatory. AYSO has developed special training that helps volunteers who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective referees.

Below are the steps necessary to volunteer as a referee:
  • Register as a volunteer. Step-by-step instructions on how to register as a volunteer and print out your completed Volunteer Application can be found by clicking HERE.

  • Take the Basic Referee, Safe Haven and Concussion Awareness classes by clicking HERE

Referee Point System - Spring Playoff Qualification
1/8/2016

Region 1258 cannot offer safe, fun and fair games for our players without volunteer referees. In order for Region 1258 to succeed in supporting such a large pool of players, it must recruit, train, develop and retain a pool of competent volunteer referees and officials. Paying referees is not an option because AYSO is a non-profit, volunteer organization.

To incentivize the participation of volunteer referees, the Region has implemented a point system that will qualify teams to participate in the Regional Playoffs based on each teams’ contribution to the referee pool. Specifically, each team in the U10-19 divisions is required to earn a minimum of 7 points during the regular spring season and commit to assist or referee at least one game in the playoffs to qualify their team to play in the Regional Playoffs at the end of the regular season.

Points may be earned during the regular season as follows:
  • 2 Points - Referee U14-19 game
  • 1.5 Points - Assistant Referee U14-19 game OR Referee U10-12 game
  • 1 Point - Assistant Referee U10-12 game OR Referee U8 game
  • 1 Point - Attend a referee training or meeting
  • A referee can split his/her points between a maximum of two teams and excees points cannot be shared or otherwise donated
Referee training is provided by Region 1258 at the times and locations identified on the website.

Although we encourage your participation, please remember that volunteering to referee is NOT a right, it comes with the responsibility to act with integrity, honest effort and the promise to never criticize the calls of our fellow referee's. We need volunteers to train and develop into Intermediate and Advanced Referees who will, one day, become Instructors and Assessors in support of the Region for years to come.
Registration is currently:

Testimonials
Through soccer, Madeline has learned many valuable lessons including teamwork, sportsmanship and dedication. Lessons she will take with her for the rest of her life.

I can't say enough nice things about the dedicated coaching staff who even with 8-9 other girls on the team, found a way to make our daughter feel special and nurtured her as an individual to bring out the best of her natural abilities.

Through AYSO our entire family has made life long friends and countless wonderful memories.
Kathleen T.
AYSO has been a great experience for my family. It's so much fun watching my 7 year old daughter enjoy, grow, and develop her soccer skills. My participation as a volunteer coach makes the experience even more rewarding, for both my daughter and myself. Volunteering brings the community together in a meaningful and rewarding way! I highly recommend participating and volunteering in AYSO to all my friends and neighbors, it's an experience that will give your familly a lifetime of great memories!
Victor S.
The other day my daughter commented that she wished she had soccer practice every night. I asked her, don't you think you would get sick of it? She said no way!! I get to run around with my friends and have fun. What's there to get sick of?

We love AYSO and the opportunities it affords our kids to grow both physically and socially.
