If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should consider becoming a referee with San Marcos AYSO.

Become part of the SAN MARCOS AYSO REFEREE TEAM in just a few steps:
If you are a returning referee email our Referee Director at refereedirector@sanmarcosayso.org. Also, please update your volunteer information for this season at https://www.eayso.org/. 

If you are a new referee or would like to take a refresher class then
  1. Register as an AYSO Volunteer at https://www.eayso.org/ to obtain your AYSO Volunteer ID Number. 
  2. From the eAYSO home page select “Enroll to take a class”. Search for classes in CA, Section 11, Area R, Region 127 and sign-up for a class. 

Please note that AYSO Volunteer ID Number number is different from your AYSO Player Number if you are a player. Even if you have registered before, you need to update your Volunteer Registration form for this season. 

Class options will include full day classroom training, part online – part class room training, and AR only training. Regional intermediate referee classes are also available. We will ease you into refereeing by pairing you with a mentor on the field during your first game and schedule you to start with the younger age groups.

If you have any questions please contact our Referee Director at refereedirector@sanmarcosayso.org. Referee training is available online. To access the online referee portion of the class please click here. You will need your AYSO Volunteer ID number to access the AYSO training website.

SAFE HAVEN CLASS REQUIRED FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS

Safe Haven is a program instituted by AYSO to comply with the Child Protection Act of 1993.  Each team must have a certified coach that has taken this class. AYSO requires all volunteers are certified through the Safe Haven Program. The class goes over Child Protection, safety rules and volunteer liability protection. The Safe Haven Class is available online. San Marcos AYSO also hosts several Safe Haven courses throughout the year. Contact our Child and Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA) to find out when courses are being held and to sign up.

Click here to take the Safe Haven course online.

All Volunteers must register with AYSO National before taking the Safe Haven class. Click here for online registration or download the Volunteer Registration and mail two copies to San Marcos AYSO.  There may be a short delay while your AYSO National registration is completed before you can take the course.
