San Marcos AYSO #127

Why should you become an AYSO Referee? 
The kids need you!   

No referee = No game

AYSO Region 127 Youth Referee Program

Kids as young as 12 years old are permitted to officiate matches in the U10 division and below.  Refereeing in AYSO is a terrific way to help kids learn responsibility and build self-confidence.  As the kids enter high school, they have opportunities to manage more challenging matches and even earn High School Community Service credits as AYSO referees.

The AYSO Youth Referee Program is an opportunity for youths age 12 or above to participate as referees. 

All referees must be at least two years older than the divisions they referee.

Experienced adult referee mentor are available to help new youth referees. 

There will be ZERO-tolerance on negative criticism or verbal abuse of youth referees.  

Board members will be monitoring the games and will instruct offending parties to leave the field.  Please remind this to everyone.

Please make it enjoyable for referees to ref. especially the YOUTH REFEREES.
