Referee Training 2019

We need parents and other community members to volunteer as referees.  If you're willing to help, please see the info here:

Referees

Referee training for new referees (teenagers or adults) will be Friday evening, August 30, starting at 6pm. Before taking the in-person class, there is an online portion of the course that must be completed, so please contact Jonathan Burk, our Referee Administrator, to get more info. And thanks in advance for volunteering!

There are other referee courses in Saugus, Valencia and Canyon Country throughout the months of August and September (usually on Saturdays or Sundays). If you can't attend our Castaic class, those are also an option.

Check back here for a updated list of local referee training courses, or search online at aysou.org

AYSO Parents' Guide

Parents, referees and coaches, be sure to check out the "AYSO Guidance For Referees, Coaches, Other Volunteers & Parents."  It tells you about the rules of soccer and the AYSO program.  There are some changes for 2017 that aren't included in this version yet, but it's still a valuable resource.
