Fall 2014 Referee Classes in AYSO Region 18

The Region will train you and provide your referee equipment and uniform.  Anyone 12 years of age and older is eligible to become a Regional Referee.   While most of our referees are adults, we do have a growing and successful Youth Referee Program for those referees under 16 years of age.

STEP ONE:  Apply as a Fall 2013 AYSO Volunteer

Help us prepare for the Fall 2013 soccer season by going to eAYSO.org and complete your new Volunteer Form today.  Here's how.  

Before enrolling in a referee training course, you must complete a Volunteer Form and the Safe Haven online training.  If you have not done so, please click here to complete this step. 

STEP TWO:  Register for a course on eAYSO.

Our Basic Referee Online Companion Course is the fastest route to certification as a referee; half of the course is completed online at your leisure before the live class.  These courses are taught by local volunteer Referee Instructors and are designed to get you out on the field as effortlessly as possible.  You must complete the online portion of the course before attending an Online Companion Course.
