Become a referee!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! No prior soccer knowledge or experience is required to take any of our training courses.  Enthusiastic, positive individuals with no soccer experience are often great referees!

All persons aged 18 and older are welcome to apply to be a referee and all youths aged 12 to 17 are welcome to apply to be a youth referee for divisions 2 year or younger than them.  To referee in Davis AYSO, you need to follow these steps below.

Referee certification is a one-time requirement for the division. Certification requirements depend on the type of certification you are seeking, but typically include

  • Referee License 
  • Compliance in Risk Status
  • Concussion Awareness
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest
  • AYSO Safe Haven

Each of these training modules will be available on the AYSO University ("AYSOU") website once you are registered as a volunteer.
