PROCEDURES FOR NEW REFEREES

AYSO is a large volunteer run organization that works with hundreds of thousands of children throughout the country. Through our widely acclaimed Safe Haven program we take special precautions to screen and properly train the thousands of volunteers who work with our children.

As part of this program all referees are required to:

  • Submit a signed Volunteer Application Form (VAF) every year.
  • Be formally Safe Haven certified by AYSO
  • Be properly trained and certified as a referee by AYSO.

The referee and Safe Haven certifications, and annual VAF, must be properly recorded in the National database (eAYSO) or referees will not be permitted to participate in AYSO games.

Procedures required to satisfy these requirements are listed here: Procedures for New Referees
