MY2012 Referee Points System

Referee Points System


To entice more people to step up and volunteer to referee games as their kids get older, AYSO Region 213 has implemented a Referee Points System which impacts a team's standings.

Due to changes in the format for the Fall Season, the Referee Points System has also been modified.

Teams can earn a maximum of 1 Referee Point (RP) per week from doing games as referee or assistant referee. The week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday.

Each game has a total points value of 2 Referee Points (or "RPs"). The referee (in uniform and signed up in the scheduling system) earns one (1) RP for the team they designate. Each assistant referee earns one-half RP for the team they designate. Ideally, one team supplies the referee while the other team supplies both assistant referees.

No team can earn RPs if there match was canceled because no certified referee registered to conduct the match (and neither team can "make up" the lost RPs by doing additional games in a subsequent weekend).

Additional RPs can be earned through referee certifications in the current season:

  • A volunteer who becomes a certified Basic Referee by taking a class between August 1 and the before the last game of the Regular Season earns one (1) RP for the team they designate. 
    • Note: A U-8 Official who upgrades their certification to Basic Referee only earns one (1) RP for the team they designate. 
    • Clarification [Added 09/24/2012 at 11:12 AM]: A new Basic Referee or U-8 Official who upgrades their certification to Basic Referee must complete one game as Referee (not as Assistant Referee) to claim this additional Referee Point.
  • A volunteer who upgrades the Referee certification (from Basic Referee to Intermediate Referee, Intermediate Referee to Advanced Referee or Advanced Referee to National Referee) between August 1 and before the last game of the Regular Season earns three (3) RPs for the team they designate.

All RPs must be reported by the referee or assistant referee to the Referee Points Administrator no later than 5 PM on the Sunday following the Saturday game.

No RPs are earned for doing games not assigned to AYSO Region 213.
