AYSO Region 86 - Laguna Beach CA


Volunteer Referee Information - be a referee; it's FUN!

Need referee points to qualify your child's team for Postseason play or simply want to be a volunteer referee? Here’s how to become a new referee in AYSO Region 86 Laguna Beach. It’s free!  And it's fun!

FIRST:  Log in to your AYSO Region 86 account (use the Login button above) and register as a volunteer for the current Membership Year (MY).  Make sure you E-sign (electronically sign) your on-line volunteer application. (Note: there is a section of the on-line volunteer application that requests a fee payment for background check.  Make sure you DO NOT select the payment option unless you wish to basically donate the fee so the Region does not have to pay for it.)

SECOND: Take the following online courses at the AYSO University (use the AYSOU tab above).  Log in using the same credentials that you set up when registering your children (or yourself as a volunteer).  Click on “Online Courses” in the banner, then scroll down the page to access the appropriate training module.

AYSO's Safe Haven
 This is child and volunteer protection training required by all AYSO volunteers.
CDC: Concussion Course
 This is concussion awareness training required by all coaches and referees.
Regional Referee Training
 This is the on-line portion of the basic referee training.  See alternate option below.

Do all the above first - you MUST finish the online training before you take the "in-person" referee companion course! (That’s because the "in-person" course builds heavily on the material presented in the online course.)

THIRD: Sign up for and attend an "in-person" companion course.  This is an approximately four (4) hour, instructor lead course. To sign up, use the AYSOU tab above and select "In-Person Courses" in the banner.  Open the "Referee Instructor Lead Courses" folder.  Open the "Regional Referee Online Companion Course" folder and find a course to sign up for.  You may have to click on the "Sessions" button to see all available sessions.  This lists all available courses everywhere AYSO exists, from Hawaii to the East Coast.  So be sure you sign up for one that you can physically attend.  All local training in our Region and Area should be listed.  Click on this link for local training courses offered in our Area.

ALTERNATE OPTION:  You may sign up for a full day, (approximately) eight (8) hour "Regional Referee Course".  Follow the same instructions above in AYSOU but open the "Regional Referee Course" folder.  In this case, only the on-line Save Haven and Concussion Awareness training needs to be completed in addition to this course.  Click on this link for local training courses offered in our Area.

LASTLY and for MORE INFORMATION: Send Email to the Regional Director of Referee Instruction and/or Assessment ([email protected] and [email protected]) for any questions about training and let the Regional Referee Administrator ([email protected]) know that you have completed your training so he/she can get you in the system to sign up for games and issue you your referee uniform and equipment.  Then get out there on the field and have fun with the kids!
