On this page - Referee Training for Fall 2013 in AYSO Region 57: Scroll down the page for this information.
For all who are interested in becoming a volunteer Referee in Region 57: On behalf of the Region 57 Board of Directors and all involved in Region 57, we all thank you for volunteering and we are sure being a Referee will be a rewarding experience for you and for the children of Region 57.
There are several you need to complete to become a Region 57 AYSO Referee. These are, in order:
1) Go to www.eayso.org and register yourself to become a Volunteer Referee. Once on the website, click the I am New to AYSO and Want to Volunteer button, and follow the directions.
2) Once you have registered and obtain your AYSO ID number, go to www.aysotraining.com and take the Online Safe Haven Training Class.
3) Also on the www.aysotraining.com website, once you have completed the Safe Haven class, then you take the Online Regional Referee Training Class. This class takes 2-3 hours and can be completed at your own pace and you can go through it multiple times. You must complete the Online Referee training class before you can take the In Person Referee Training Class.
4) Once you have completed all of the steps 1-3, then you can take the In Person Referee Training Class. This year we are offering 3 opportunities to take the In Person class. You can attend any of the following classes, all of which will be at the Oasis Senior Center, 801 Narcissus Avenue (at 5th), Corona del Mar, CA 92625:
a. Class 1: Thursday August 29 at 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
b. Class 2: Thursday September 5 at 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
c. Class 3: Sunday September 8 at 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
5) Please click here and let me know which classes you plan to attend so I have a headcount. Also, please contact me if you have any questions about any aspect of becoming a Referee, including the on line and in person classes.
A couple of additional notes:
1) We are no longer offering the U8 Official referee class. If you take this class, you will be a Regional Referee, eligible to referee any Region 57 soccer game.
2) If you are already a U8 Official from a prior year and you wish to upgrade to Regional Referee, you need to take this entire class. We no longer offer the “U8 to Regional Referee” class.
3) If you already took the Regional Referee class in a prior year, you do not need to take it again. Of course you are welcome to take the On-Line class and/or sit in on the In-Person class, but once you are a Certified Referee, you do not need to re-take the class. All you need to do is update your Volunteer Form.
4) Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
