Referee Training


Santa Monica Region 20 periodically offers referee training courses that are FREE to Santa Monica volunteer parents!!!  This Fall season we will be offering 3 opportunities to take the basic referee class, or “Regional Referee” course, for the new volunteer.  In addition, for those of you that are going to upgrade your certification, we have put together an Intermediate Referee Course and an Advanced Referee Course which will be held the weekend of August 18-19 right here in Santa Monica (Lincoln Middle School)!   Please go to our Referee Training Course Schedule for upcoming referee training course dates and info.  If the dates for either courses don’t work for you, there are neighboring regions (Pacific Palisades, Culver City, Beverly Hills) that will be offering referee classes as well.

Note:  all Region 20 volunteers/referees are allowed to attend courses in other regions as well.  Region 20 will reimburse course fees.  Keep a receipt and submit it to the Regional Treasurer.

Finding and taking on-line courses

In addition to classroom training, all referees must have taken the Safe Haven On-line course (and it must have been taken during or after 2011).

The CDC Concussion Awareness course is also required (available also at AYSOU.org)

(Returning volunteers, when logging in to AYSOU.org to sign up for a course, use your eAYSO login email and password.)
