Volunteer and Train

AYSO's national training program is outstanding and will prepare you to referee. Follow these steps to become a referee:

1. New volunteers, complete an AYSO volunteer application at eAYSO.org. Returning volunteers, update your volunteer application for 2016 at eAYSO.org. Retain your AYSO member number and password.

First-time adult volunteers only; print and mail a photocopy of your driver's license to Jim Brogan, 1132 Bernal Ave., Burlingame, CA 94010. Or, scan and email a copy to Jim Brogan, jfbrogan@earthlink.net.

2. Sign up for referee training. Go to eAYSO.org. Sign in using your eAYSO passwod and click on "Sign up to take a class". Search using the eAYSO roster number in the table below. If none of these dates work for you, additional training sessions in neighboring AYSO Regions area available, search "Section 2", "Area N", and the class name.

    U8-Official Training will train you to referee 5- to 7-year-olds in games with simplified rules and takes 3 hours to complete.

    Basic Referee Training (Recommended) prepares you to referee regulation soccer matches. New Basic Referees usually begin as Assistant Referees working with an experienced referee in the U10 Divisions (8- and 9-year-olds). With experience, Basic Referees can also officiate U12 Division games.

    There are two formats for the Basic Referee Training, a Classroom/Field session and an Online/Field session. Each format takes about a total of 6 hours to complete.

      For the Online/Field training session, you must independently complete online training at AYSOtraining.org. For the Classroom/Field format, the same information is provided in the classroom.

      For your field session, wear comfortable clothes and shoes you can run in. A written test follows the field session and is part of the learning process.

Referee Development and Mentoring

Experienced referees support and mentor new referees. You will become a full-fledged referee in a postitive and supportive environment.

U10 Division Cup Volunteer Point (CVP) System
U10 Divsion team referee volunteers are required for participation in the Burlingame Cup Playoff Tournament. The new recruits can be parents, family and friends. New referees will be affiliated with their respective teams. Help your team earn at least 9 points during the regular season (Each game refereed counts as 1 point).

U12 Referee Volunteer Point (RVP) System
Each U12 Divsion team is asked to provide volunteers trained as Basic Referees. These referees can earn points toward their team's Division standings when they referee games.

On-Field Mentoring
New referees typically start to officiate as U8 referees or U10 Assistant Referees. An experieced referee will be assigned to support new referees learning game day procedures and how to apply the laws of the game. Mentors also help ensure that coaches, parents, and referees work together to give players a positive soccer experience.
