REFEREE TRAINING

Become an AYSO Referee
The referee’s job is to be the official in charge of the game. A referee’s authority extends to everyone at the field, including players, substitutes, team officials, spectators, and even assistant referees. AYSO Referees keep the game safe, fair and fun for everyone: the players, the coaches, the spectators, and themselves!

This is an opportunity to further develop your referee skills in classes taught by some of Southern California's top instructors. The Intermediate and Advanced courses are especially timely, given several important Law changes this year.

For detailed course and location information, simply click on the course heading below. The Regional Referee course is one day (either Saturday or Sunday). The Basic Referee Companion Course is Sunday afternoon, and is only available to students who have completed the Online Basic Referee Course in AYSOU. Intermediate and Advanced Referee courses are two days (Saturday and Sunday).
