The AYSO 161 Youth Referee Program is open to all players who are at least 12 years old.  It provides benefits to the player, the team and the region.  We will train you - for FREE.  We will mentor you to assure you are comfortable and continue to learn.  

Do I Train Differently Than Adult Volunteers?
No.  You receive the same training as adult volunteers.  Check out the Referee Training and Certification page for upcoming classes.

What Age Group Games Can I Ref?

Under 18? Signing Up for a Volunteer Role

Each Youth Referee will need to initially create their own volunteer account on Blue Sombrero (AYSO161.org) to receive a national AYSO Volunteer ID #. This profile will then be yours for life, collecting and saving all of your training and certifications you earn as a volunteer. You will then use this profile each year when you sign up as a volunteer.
