Each team in U8 girls AND boys are now required to supply referees for their own matches. The home team must supply the CR and 1 AR. The Away team must supply 1 AR. Teams are responsible for finding replacements if they are unable to supply referees for a game. Teams that do not fulfill this staffing requirement will lose a point for each unfilled slot.
NEW for U10 in 2016
Each team in U10 girls AND boys are now required to supply 1 referee for the match immediately preceding theirs on the same field. An AR or CR slot will fulfill the staffing requirement. Teams are responsible for finding replacements if they are unable to supply referees for a game. Teams that do not fulfill this staffing requirement will lose a point for each unfilled slot.

Credit for Refereeing Own Player’s Matches (U10-U14 only)
We don’t allow you to sign up to referee your own player’s’ games (except U6 and U8). However, if you sign up and ref a game and ALSO fill in on your player’s game for a no show or vacancy, we will give you credit for the fill-in. To get credit for the fill-in, you must notify your referee division captain within 72 hours of the game. In U6 and U8 we EXPECT you to referee your own player’s games.
Credit for Referee Training Course (Bonus Points)
We award new and returning refs ONE point for successfully completing the basic referee course (not the half-day U6 course) provided the newly trained refs sign up and ref at least two games over the following three weekends (for which they will also receive credit). Returning refs must sign up and ref at least two games in the month of November to receive the bonus point. You can also earn 1 bonus points for your team by upgrading to Intermediate or higher badge within 6 months prior to the start of the season or during the regular Fall season.
Credit for Youth referees
Youth referees can earn points for the team that they play for and their siblings’ team(s). If a Youth Referee works 5 games during the season they will earn one bonus point for their team.
Credit for Mentoring
Points may be awarded for mentoring assignments with the prior approval of the referee administration.
Play-offs and Tournaments
Teams with less than the required minimum number of points may not participate in play-offs and invitational tournaments. Points may be earned in these events with prior approval of the RRA. Each team is expected to do their fair share. Failure to do so may result in elimination from the play-offs or tournament regardless of the number of points earned during the season.
EXTRA Team Points
EXTRA teams must get at least one point for every game that their team is scheduled to play plus a potential 1 point bonus for taking the referee clinic for basic (as described above) OR upgrading to Intermediate or higher badge within 6 month prior to the start of the season or during the regular Fall season. As an example, if they play or scheduled to play, 10 games then they must earn at least 13 points, 3 of which comes from bonus points. EXTRA teams may also earn points by refereeing regular AYSO games.
Upper Division matches (U16 and U19) are covered by a different system. Online sign-ups for those games are found at:
http://www.ayso76.net/new/inleague/index.cfm. As a region we are required to cover our “fair share” of games. No team is assigned a quota of games to cover.
