Welcome Referees

Volunteer Forms – each year a new volunteer form is required.
Login to the Region 12 web page, click My Account in the top right corner and create a new account and complete the information to become a volunteer.  Go through every page and make sure to thoroughly complete all necessary information and make sure you type in your name for signature.  No print outs required because we are using eSignature!

Referee Point System
AYSO is an all-volunteer organization and therefore relies on volunteers for the successful implementation of its program. This point system is designed to encourage volunteer participation and ensure that games have sufficient referee coverage. Without referees there can be no games! And without games, there can be no program! We are all in this together. It is our hope that each team will provide, at a minimum, one Referee at the U8 level and three Referees at the higher levels (U10 and above).

Be a Referee! It’s fun! You get the best seat in the house. No experience necessary! We provide all the training you’ll need to be successful. Please see the training schedule.

Let’s Look Sharp!
All Referees are urged to wear the uniform properly. Please wear the jersey tucked into the shorts, wear referee shorts around the waist, wear black socks with white stripes, and predominantly black shoes. Also, when you are at the fields but are not refereeing, please replace your referee jersey with another shirt.

Concussion Training
Referees must decide if a player is too hurt to play and concussions are important to recognize.  Concussion training is available through AYSOU.

Special Guidelines for Short Sided games
AYSO plays Short sided games with special Laws for our younger divisions (U8 and below)  Region 12 has a few modifications to the National Guidelines.
