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 Should I 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! 

Referee Requirements

Fall Team Referee Requirements

8U teams shall provide one registered volunteer with Safe Haven for each game played; home team will officiate the first half and visiting team the second half.  Teams that complete their game assignment, snack shack and field painting hours will be eligible for a reimbursement of up to $50 in team expenses (receipt required). 

10U - 12U - 14U - 16U - 19U TEAMS 
10U - 19U divisions may earn up to 3 ref points each week, one ref point per referee. These points will be added to points earned through game play to determine team standings.

Minimum amount of Referee points are required to qualify for AYSO Region 94 post season playoffs:  

  • 17 ref points for 10U & 12U divisions (10 points for teams traveling for Area play during the regular season)
  • 10 points for 14U - 16U - 19U divisions
  • The maximum ref points available to one team is 30
  • Any team unable to complete their point total may not participate in future playoffs/tournaments.

A minimum of 15 Referee points are required, teams may earn up to 3 points per home game, one ref point per referee.  Any team unable to complete their point total will not be allowed to participate in future Tournaments.

Teams qualifying to play in our post season playoffs shall provide two referee points per game played; point verification will only be obtained from the game card with the signature and team number documented by the participating referees.  

Any team failing to provide the required referee points will result in their game being forfeited.

In the unlikely event there are more referees available than referee slots, the referee administrator shall be allowed to award the referee point to a team by assigning the representing referee to another job.  

The overall intent is to share the responsibility among each team/parent.  Region 94 is a volunteer organization.  Our motto is to create a fair, fun, and safe environment. Remember participation should not only be a priority, but our commitment to make AYSO Region 94 the best we can be.
