Referee Administrator - Bill Vecchio
Referees are as critical to soccer as players and coaches. In AYSO, the game can’t be played
if there aren’t enough referees. It’s most common for a volunteer to begin their
AYSO referee career by refereeing their own child’s game. However, as they learn
the rules, develop their own techniques for managing players, coaches and fans,
and gain an appreciation for how important the role of the referee is to a fun,
fair and safe soccer experience, they often find it very rewarding to expand
their knowledge and experience through AYSO’s advanced training and
certification process. AYSO’s referee training is considered some of the best in
the U.S. and includes both in-person courses in your community and online
opportunities. Soccer knowledge is a plus, but is certainly not required. The
AYSO referee training will give you all you need to know to have a terrific
experience on the field.
