How to Become a Referee

Here's all the steps to get certified as an AYSO Regional referee:

  1. Be at least 12 years old.
  2. If you are not already a registered volunteer, log into, click on "VOLUNTEER" on the left menu, then click the "Find Volunteer Roles" button at the top right. Sign up as a Referee (it doesn't matter what division you sign up for).
  3. If you have not before, take the following free online courses at AYSOU ( Click "My Courses", then the following:
    1. AYSO's Safe Haven
    2. CDC: Concussion Course
  4. Sign up for the Basic Referee Online Companion Course in our region (or a nearby region) by visiting, login, click "Enroll to take a class". Set Section to "5", Area "C", Region "894", then click Search (leave Region as "all" to search all nearby regions).
  5. Attend the Basic Referee Companion Course you signed up for! You must have taken Course R002 - Basic Referee Online Training online before coming to this class! The class will be live in a classroom and with an exam at the end. The purpose of this class is to review and test the knowledge you should have obtained from the online training.
  6. Attend the pre-season field training session. This will be a couple of scrimmage games specifically for new referees to practice with experienced referees.
  7. Signup for an account on our referee scheduling system, Sportacus ( Once you are verified, you will be able to self-assign for any games that work with your personal schedule.

It looks like a lot of training, but most volunteers complete all the requirements in around 6-8 hours and most of that is online instruction you can take on your own schedule.

You can take the online courses at any time, but must complete the Basic Referee Online course before attending the Basic Referee Online Companion course and taking the Referee Exam.
