American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Welcome to AYSO Region 94 - La Habra, Brea, Fullerton



Why do YOU need to be a REFEREE?

 Imagine you show up for your kid’s soccer game, but there are NO REFEREES? Everybody goes home very disappointed. Could it happen? Yes it could. The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization. As such, we rely on YOU to volunteer to put together a comprehensive program for our kids. Referees are one of the cornerstones of AYSO.

We will TRAIN you to be a referee. We will even give you a stylish uniform! You will then be able to enjoy the game much more because you will now understand it. You will also be helping your team by getting them “referee points”. 

Question: Can kids referee?

Answer: Yes they can! You just have to be 12 years old to be a youth referee. It’s a great way for a kid to learn the game even better!   And it counts for community service hours for high school kids!

The usual excuses not to referee:

I’m busy:
Answer: So am I. So are we. So are the coaches. So are the team parents. So are the field coordinators. So are the Snack Shack volunteers, Etc.  

It’s hard to schedule around my kid’s game.
Answer: Same for everyone!   

Someone else will do it.
Answer: If everyone thought that way, no one would do it.

I don’t know anything about soccer.
Answer: Neither did I. You don’t have to know anything.   We train!
