Youth Referee Program

Youth Referee Information

The Youth Referee program exists to answer the growing demand for referees in the 8U and 10U Divisions and to provide a leadership opportunity for young people in our community.

Here’s how it works: Girls and boys ages 13-17 take the required referee training courses which certify them to officiate 8U through 10U games. These Youth Referees meet the same certification requirements as adults do for these Divisions. Like the adults, they will be provided with all they need to begin refereeing; uniform, whistle etc. at the completion of their training. A mentor accompanies Youth Referees to most games, especially their first few as the Referee - the person in charge of the game. AYSO rules require a Youth Referee must be at least two years older than the Division they are working as a Referee.

The program has multiple benefits:

  • It inspires younger players, giving them role models to look up to.
  • Young people participating in the Youth Referee program get a chance to do community service and a unique opportunity for intellectual and emotional growth.

We're always interested in making our program better. Please contact us with any suggestions you have.
