Referee Training

AYSO's National Referee Program provides comprehensive referee training for all levels of play that use referees in AYSO, starting with 8U and continuing through 18U. Because the time commitment for training is not significantly different between 8U, called "8U Official", and 10U, called "Regional Referee", Hillsborough AYSO offers only Regional Referee training locally. Volunteers to referee our 8U divisions are strongly encouraged to complete Regional Referee training, which is valid, and valuable, through 12U. 

The five AYSO referee certification levels are
• 8U Official – Required to officiate 8U matches
• Regional Referee – Required for 10U and above
• Intermediate Referee – Recommended for 12U and above
• Advanced Referee – Recommended for 14U and above
• National Referee – Recommended for 16U and 18U


Regional Referee training is available in two formats:

1. A full day class led by an instructor, called "Regional Referee Course" on AYSOU

2. A split format:

Part A: an online tutorial you take first on your own, called "Regional Referee Training" on AYSOU
Part B: a half day class led by an instructor, called "Regional Referee Online Companion Course" on AYSOU.

Hillsborough AYSO offers the half day class in conjunction with Burlingame on several dates in late August and early September. You are welcome to take either format at your convenience, from any AYSO Region. If you do the split class, you must complete the online portion before the in-person field training. Please try to complete training before opening day!
