======================================================================== Five Easy Steps to Becoming a Referee
In North Irvine, Region 213
1.) Go to www.eAYSO.org and SIGN up to be a VOLUNTEER.
Complete the form, sign, and print. Bring to first class of Basic Referee Training. (Note your eAYSO id#)
2.) Next, go to www.eAYSO.org
and select “Look Up,” then “Course.” You can narrow your search by
including the city, region 213, or Area Q. You may also search by the roster number if you know it, but if you cannot find the class using the roster number, then use broader criteria. There is a chance that the roster number could have changed. Once the class lists appear,
select the course that you would like to register for.
3.) Then, go to http://www.aysotraining.org/.
Login with your eAYSO id number, select "Courses" and then select "Safe
Haven." Complete the 70 minute Safe Haven training to ensure the
safety of players. Please complete the course prior to Referee Training
4.) If you are planning on attending one of the Basic Referee
or U-8 Official Trainings listed above, you are now ready and may skip the rest of this step. IF you attending the Basic Referee Online Companion Course then you must first take the Online Referee Training. Go to http://www.aysotraining.org/.
Login with your eAYSO id number, select "Courses," and then select "Referee Training." Complete the course. Take and pass the short quiz at the end of the training. When you pass the quiz, please print the online certificate and BRING this certificate to the Basic Referee Online Companion Course. You MAY NOT take the Basic Referee Online Companion Course without first completing the online Referee Training.
5.) Attend and complete the appropriate training course and test. Receive a
uniform and equipment to get started as a certified referee! (If you attend a class outside of Region 213, you will probably not receive a uniform and/or referee gear. You will need to contact email@example.com to get your supplies and to get entered into our scheduling system.)
For any questions please email Dorian Johnson, Regional Referee Director of Instruction at RDRI@AYSOsoccer.org.
