How to Sign-Up for Regional Referee Class

  1. Register as Volunteer Referee thru Blue Sombrero.
    • Instructions how to register as an adult volunteer.
      • If you are a new volunteer, you need to set up a Blue Sombrero account and be assigned a new 9 digit Blue Sombrero ID#.
      • If you are a returning volunteer and you already have an 8-digit eAYSO ID #, your existing ID# should stay with you. Blue Sombrero assigns a new number only if it does not recognize you in eAYSO.  Please check to be sure you logged in to Blue Sombrero with EXACTLY the same name you used in eAYSO.  In other words, if you were James or Timothy or William in eAYSO, Blue Sombrero will not recognize Jim or Tim or Bill.  Blue Sombrero will think you are a new user, assign you a new ID, and your AYSO certificates will NOT migrate over from eAYSO.  Please login to Blue Sombrero again with your EXACT eAYSO name.  Also, you need to e-sign the form and agree to the background check in Blue Sombrero.

Area 11L Coach & Referee Training

July 13-14, 2019

Location: Marco Forster Middle School, 25601 Camino del Avion, San Juan Capistrano


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).
