Referee Certification Required

AYSO has announced important steps to ensure that every AYSO child has the best possible soccer learning experience. Referees in every AYSO Region are required to have AYSO’s Referee Training, AYSO Safe Haven® and CDC Concussion certification when they take the field. The policy was approved and adopted by the National Board of Directors at their July 2009 meeting and is supported by the National Referee Advisory Commission.

Instructor Led Referee Training is held before the start of the Fall and Spring Seasons in multiple locations in Area C (Southeast Michigan).

There is an On-line Regional Referee Training course that requires an in-person Companion Course that is available at

Please contact the Referee Administrator at [email protected] if you are interested in taking this path.
