Five Easy Steps to Becoming a Referee In North Irvine, Region 213


1.  Register as a Volunteer
Go to www.eAYSO.org and SIGN up to be a VOLUNTEER. Complete the form, sign, and print. Bring the form to the first class, along with ID (youth referees do not need ID).  (Note your eAYSO id#)
 
2.  Register for your Referee Class
Next, go to www.eAYSO.org  and select “Look Up,” then “Course.” (If you are on the MyeAYSO home page, look for the "Enroll" choice on the lower right.)  You can narrow your search by including the city, region 213, or Area Q.  You may also search by the roster number if you know it, but if you cannot find the class using the roster number, then use broader criteria.  There is a chance that the roster number could have changed.  Once the class lists appear, select the course that you would like to register for. (Some Area Referee Camps ask that you register directly with the Area hosting the course. If this is the case, then follow that Area's registration instructions.)
 
3.  Take the Safe Haven Course
Then, go to http://www.aysotraining.org/.  Login with your eAYSO id number, select "Courses" and then select "Safe Haven."  Complete the 70 minute Safe Haven training to ensure the safety of players.  Please complete the course prior to Referee Training if possible.
 
4.  Take the Basic Referee Online Training (if necessary)
If you are planning on attending one of the Basic Referee or U-8 Official Training courses listed above, you are now ready and may skip to step Five. IF you are attending the Basic Referee Online Companion Course then you must first take the Basic Referee Online Training.  Go to http://www.aysotraining.org/.  Login with your eAYSO id number, select "Courses," and then select "Basic Referee Online Training."  Complete the course.  Take and pass the short quiz at the end of the training.  When you pass the quiz, please print the online certificate and BRING this certificate to the Basic Referee Online Companion Course.  You MAY NOT take the Basic Referee Online Companion Course without first completing the online Referee Training.

5.  Take Your Referee Class
Attend and complete the appropriate training course and test. Receive a uniform and equipment to get started as a certified referee! (If you attend a class outside of Region 213, you will probably not receive a uniform and/or referee gear.  You will need to contact rra@aysosoccer.org to get your supplies and to get entered into our scheduling system.)
 

For any questions please email our Regional Referee Director of Instruction, Dorian Johnson, at dorianjohnson@cox.net.
