Referees Needed

Refereeing in AYSO is a challenging and rewarding volunteer experience. Here is an opportunity for you to join the kids on the pitch as they learn to love the “Beautiful Game”. You’ll have a great time and get some exercise too! We need AYSO refereeing is available for youth and adult volunteers. Kids as young as 11 years old are permitted to officiate matches in the 8U division. As the kids enter high school, they have opportunities to manage more challenging matches and even earn community service credits as AYSO referees. Refereeing in AYSO is a terrific way to help kids learn responsibility, build self-confidence, and possibly even begin to build a career. Just as there are professional soccer players who started out as kids in AYSO, there are also professional soccer referees who started out as kids in AYSO.
