Round Lake, IL, are offering the Regional Referee class via Zoom: 4/17 (Sat) is Part I (9:00 AM to 1:PM CDT) and 4/18 (Sun) is Part II (1:00 PM to 5:00 PM CDT). Volunteers will need to attend BOTH sessions to receive credit for the course. Please register on AYSOU: the course is listed under In Person Courses and is called "S6 Regional Referee Course". The class is open to all U8-certified referees. All who complete this class and pass the exam can referee games up to U14. If you attend this class, please notify Stan Ince so we can update your WSSL profile.
West Side Soccer has no classes scheduled at this time, however we will organise classes when we have interest from ten or more volunteers.
Space is limited and advance registration at AYSOU.org is required, which first requires volunteer registration on the WSSL.org website and a completed background check for adults.
Young people aged 10 years and over, including Core and Travel soccer players and their siblings, and are very welcome to attend referee classes, and can gain community service credit for their time in class and refereeing on the field (subject to approval by their school). The Teen Referee program welcomes new members and will make sure that you have fun as well as serving the league!
Volunteer registration for young people is a little different from that for parent volunteers. Go here for Teen Referee instructions.
More information about training can be found here.

Complete Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness and Regional Referee Companion Courses Online at AYSOU.org
For Safe Haven and Regional Referee Courses, all modules for each course must be taken for the course to be considered complete. Please note that the online Regional Referee course is not a substitute for the in person class. Its aim is to get new referees up to speed so they can attend the in-person Regional Referee class without first attending the U-8 Official class.
