Why should you become an AYSO Referee? Referees are critical to soccer--the game can't be played without them. It's rewarding and working with kids is great fun!
The referee's job is to be the official that keeps the game safe, fair, and fun for everyone. By enforcing the Laws of the Game, the referee becomes the moderator and manager of the game. The referee minimizes risks from field conditions, equipment, spectators, and the players.
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 the Regional Referee Administrator, Ray Flanery (firstname.lastname@example.org) to become a referee.
