Referees

Teams need "referee points" to advance beyond the regular fall season play. When I say beyond I am referring to bonus games (for U8) and play-off games all the way up to state finals and beyond! Our region will have it's referee training so you can volunteer and earn points for the team you will represent in the fall. For information on Region 117 Referee Classes, please contact Kevin Mack, RRA at rra@ayso117.org

There are a couple of important things to do before so here is the list of links:  Start by updating your AYSO Volunteer status on Blue Sombrero and then sign-up for the course at AYSOU.  There are youth referee volunteer options also. This is also the website to sign up for our course. Each new Volunteer must create their own Volunteer ID number. Youth volunteer must have them too. It is NOT the same as their player ID.  

Contact Kevin Mack, RRA at rra@ayso117.org if you have any questions or if you're having difficulty signing up for the course...Thank you
