Referees and coaches in AYSO are volunteers. They give their time and talents freely to ensure that every player has a fun, fair and safe AYSO experience. AYSO coaches and referees frequently have their own children in the program. But because it can be such an enjoyable and rewarding experience, it’s also common for these volunteers to continue long after their own children have moved on from AYSO. 

To begin as an AYSO coach or referee, please complete an AYSO volunteer application form at after which you must be approved as a volunteer by your local AYSO Region. Once you are approved, the training to become an AYSO referee or coach is provided to you for free or at a very low cost.
