Essential Facts

AYSO is an affiliate member of US Soccer, the national governing body of soccer in the United States recognized by FIFA, the international governing body of soccer. All AYSO matches are played in accordance with the FIFA Laws of the Game and the AYSO National Rules and Regulations.

Referees are the guardians of the game. They protect its spirit by making sure the game is safe, fair and fun.

To truly understand officiating, we recommend you "walk a mile in their shoes". That is, try your hand at actually refereeing some matches.  Experience as a referee can only improve your skills as a coach, player or even spectator, and is well worth the effort.

Please read the basic summary of the Laws of the Game to help improve your knowledge. Those are located on additional tabs in this section.

You may also want to consider taking a Referee Course to further your understanding of the beautiful game.

We have a referee shortage and could really use you!
