AYSO Region 86 - Laguna Beach CA

Referee Point System

The following volunteer referee point system is in effect for the Fall seasons in Laguna Beach, Region 86. See notes below table.

5U/6U (K-League) and 16U/18U divisions:  Point system not applicable.

8U (8 years old and under):

  • 1 referee needed per game
  • 2 point per game officiated
  • 8 points total per team required* for team to participate in Friendship Tournament

10U, 12U, 14U:

  • 1 referee and 2 assistant referees needed per game
  • 2 points per game officiated* as Referee
  • 1 point per game officiated as Assistant Referee (AR)
  • 12 points total per team required* to qualify for Post-season Tournament

For a team to receive volunteer referee points, the referee must:

  • Be scheduled through the on-line scheduling system
  • Wear proper uniform with badge
  • Be training and certified
  • Have a current year volunteer form submitted
  • Assign points to the appropriate team through the on-line system

AYSO is an all-volunteer organization and therefore relies on volunteers for the successful implementation of its program. This point system is designed to encourage volunteer participation and ensure that games have sufficient referee coverage. Without referees there can be no games! And without games, there can be no program! We are all in this together. It is our hope that each team will provide, at a minimum, one Referee at the 8U level and two Referees at the higher levels (10U and above).

Be a Referee! It’s fun! You get the best seat in the house. No experience necessary! We provide all the training you’ll need to be successful. Please see the training schedule.

* Based on a 8 week regular season – the required points may be adjusted based on total number of actual regular season weeks. We highly encourage referees to officiate games other then their own child’s games.  Also, if 80% coverage or more is attained in a particular division during the regular season weeks, then all teams in the division qualify for post-season play.
