Q. Where do I get referee gear and equipment?


Q. How do I become an AYSO Referee?
A. You must first complete an AYSO volunteer application form on www.westchesterayso.org and be approved as an AYSO volunteer by Region 1438. Once you are approved as a volunteer, the training to become an AYSO referee is provided to you free of charge. Note: All volunteers must register annually, even if they no longer have kids in AYSO.

Q. Is prior soccer experience required to officiate?
A. No, but some familiarity with soccer is certainly a plus. Coaches, parents, players and other volunteers have all proved to be excellent referees even if they have not played this sport. (Youth referees are welcome!)

Q. Where do I get referee gear and equipment?
A. We will supply you with an official shirt, score sheet, whistle, and stop watch. All of these will be made available to you in the soccer garage before game time.
