We hope that you enjoyed your time on the pitch last Fall and we thank you for your dedication.
Whether you are refereeing in U6 or U19, as center referee or running the lines,
you are performing a vital role for the league and for the children, allowing them
to develop and play soccer in a manner that is Safe, Fair and Fun.
Bear in mind that you are also allowed to have fun as a referee.
We try to create a friendly and supportive environment to allow you to learn and thrive in this capacity.
We have several resources that are meant to support you as you as you participate as a referee in our League's games. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your division's chief referee.
We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs). You can find them here.
There are 3 members of the AYSO "Team" - Coaches, Referees and Parents. We have assembled some guidelines on how Coaches and Referees can cooperate to improve the experience for our players. You can see them here. Parents who aren't Coaches or Referees may find it interesting as well.
See you on the pitch!Best regards,
WSSL Regional Referee Administrator
