Region 9 is proud of our referees and the Referee Program continually seeks to improve the quality of officiating for all AYSO matches to which we are assigned. Our dedicated volunteers referee for the players, for the spectators, and for the Good of the Game.
As a Referee, you are a very important part of the "AYSO Team". Along with Coaches and Parents, you play a vital role in making sure that each child has a Fun, Safe and Fair experience in our soccer program.
Any AYSO game (other than U6) cannot be played without a properly trained and registered AYSO Referee! In Region 9, every U7 - U14 team is required to have at least one Team Referee (although more is better!). For U7 and U8 games, the Team Referee will officiate their own team's game (thus their will be two referees for the game, one from each team). The U10, U12 & U14 games have three neutral officials: A Center Referee and two Assistant Referees. Team Referees do NOT officiate their own games in those divisions.
See the Training & Upgrades page for details about our training sessions this year.
