"First Level" training is the starting training & certification course for new referees.  It covers the Laws of the Game and Match Procedures.  After taking and passing this course, referees receive a Regional AYSO referee badge, and are certified to referee games for ages up to 12U.  Even experienced and knowledgeable soccer players and coaches will start with this training and certification, after which they can proceed to Intermediate and higher certifications. 

Becoming a Referee

Keeping The Game Safe, Fair And Fun

Why should you become an AYSO Referee? We need you. We can't have games without referees. More importantly, it's rewarding and working with kids is great fun! 

Referees are critical to soccer - the game can't be played without them. The referee's job is to be the official in charge of the game. He is the independent arbiter and manager of the game. Her authority extends to everyone at the field, including players, substitutes, team officials, spectators, and even assistant referees. 

The referee's No. 1 one concern is to keep the game as safe as possible for the players. While there is risk in all sports, the referee is responsible for minimizing such risks from field conditions, equipment, spectators, and the players. 

The referee is responsible for enforcing the Laws of the Game in such a way as to keep the game safe, fair and fun for everyone: the players, the coaches, the spectators and themselves. He interferes with the game as little as possible, avoiding making calls for doubtful and trifling offenses. Referees only make calls for offenses they are sure occurred. 

We want our kids to continue to play, and they keep playing as long as it is fun. Referees learn that fun soccer varies from age group to age group of players. 

Contact your Regional Commissioner if you are ready to become a referee.


Our annual Volunteer Appreciation event will take place in Fall. Invites will be sent out.  If you do not receive the email by mid September, please contact our Regional Commissioner: [email protected]  

We can not thank you enough for your time and dedication this season.  
We look forward to seeing you on the field next season.
