Welcome to AYSO Region 1099 - Half Moon Bay

BE A REFEREE!

Referees are as critical to soccer as players and coaches.  In AYSO, the game can't be played if there aren't enough referees.  It's most common for a volunteer to begin their AYSO referee career by refereeing their own child's game.  However, as they learn the rules, develop their own techniques for managing players, coaches, and fans, and gain an appreciation for how important the role of the referee is to a fun, fair and safe soccer experience, they often find it very rewarding to expand their knowledge and experience through AYSO's advanced training and certification process.  AYSO's referee training is considered some of the the best in the U.S. and includes both in-person courses in your community and online opportunities.  Soccer knowledge is a plus, but is not required.  The AYSO referee training will give you all you need to know to have a terrific experience on the field!

Volunteering to be an 8U Team Referee

8U Team Referee - Learn the Basics, Help Out Your Child's Team Take to the Field!
The easiest way to get started as a referee is as a Team Referee in the 8U Division. Every 8U team is required to have a certified and committed team referee before the rosters can be formed. 8U Team Referees commit to officiating at least eight games during the season, preferably their child's games. Once you have been trained, you will be issued a referee t-shirt and will be able to officiate your child's game. Every 8U Team must have a designated 'Team Referee', don't leave it to 'The Other Guy', help get teams on to the Field!

Volunteering to be a Youth Referee

Youth Referees
These are our volunteer referees under the age of 18. Youth referees can be either Team Referees, dedicated to officiating for a specific 8U or 10U team, or Regional Referee helping in other games at the level they are comfortable. Volunteers must be at least 10 years old in order to be a referee and can help out in the division two years below them (i.e., a 10-year-old volunteer could help out in 8U, a 12-year-old volunteer could help in 10U, etc.). Training requirements are the same for our youth as for our adult volunteers, but youth referees receive extra support in mentoring and on-field back-up, pizza parties, incentives for refereeing a certain number of games, and credit for volunteer hours for their school.
