Referee Training

Feeling lost on the pitch? Want some help to improve your performance as a referee? Need a formal assessment to advance? Need to do some mentoring for service hours for advancement? See our Referee Training page.

All new referees must go through the following four steps in order to referee matches in our region.

STEP 1: Register as a volunteer in the National AYSO database through eAYSO.
  • Please visit www.eayso.org and follow the steps to register as a volunteer for this season.
  • eSign your completed eAYSO volunteer application.  If you are a youth volunteer, both you and a parent will need to eSign.
  • Note the volunteer number near the upper right corner of the first page.

STEP 2: Complete the online Safe Haven course (20-30 minutes).
  • Please take Safe Haven training (Course MT02 - AYSO's Safe Haven).
  • You will need the AYSO volunteer number which you noted from Step 1.

STEP 3: Take the online portion of the Basic (aka Regional) Referee course.
  • Log in at www.aysotraining.org and click the “Start Now” button below “Referee Training”.
  • You will need the AYSO volunteer number which you noted from Step 1.

STEP 4: Attend an on-field class which complements and completes Basic Referee Online Training.
