For NEW AYSO Referees!

Welcome to the AYSO Referee Program for Region 9!  We appreciate your commitment to our players as an AYSO volunteer.

Whether you begin your volunteer “career” as a U8 Referee or as a Regional Referee, we want you to receive the very best in training, mentoring and even referee-specific fitness training. We are excited to help you get from the classroom to the soccer field.

Remember, with AYSO, soccer is more than just a game!

If you have not done so, please take the CDC Head's Up Concussion Training online course. The link and more information about it is on our Training & Upgrades page.
