American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.


Interested in refereeing? Please complete this Volunteer Interest form.

Volunteer referees are essential for our program. Each fall season, we need 60+ referees to run hundreds of games for players ages 5 to 19.

Parents, relatives, friends, and youths (12 year old and over) can serve as AYSO referees:

  • No prior experience or knowledge of soccer is needed. All volunteers are trained, certified, equipped, and mentored to be great referees.
  • Each 7U and 8U team needs to have at least one 8U referee.
  • Each 10U and 12U team needs to have at least one Regional referee.
  • AYSO is a safe space. Negative behavior that has been traditionally allowed or condoned in other leagues is rejected and actively disallowed in our league.


  • You may satisfy middle-school and high-school community service requirements by refereeing AYSO games.
  • Are you looking to make some $money$? AYSO is a great training ground to eventually earn $ as referees in USSF leagues. We give you free gear, free training, national certifications, and, most importantly: lots of practice and mentorship to hone your skills.
  • You will be part of our Youth Referee Program, run by experienced youth referees, where you will meet and share experiences with other youth referees, among other fun activities.
  • Refereeing helps develop leadership, communication, and mediation skills, it looks great on college applications and résumés.
  • Players improve their game by becoming referees: they gain deep knowledge on the Laws of the Game and learn about the dynamics of the game by watching games from the best "seat" in the house.
