Referee Self-Scheduling Program


The Fall 2022 Referee Schedule has now been posted to the Region 9 website.
Referees who have met all 5 requirements below should now have access to the referee self-scheduling program.  Contact Chuck Huffer if you cannot access self-scheduling and you are sure that you have indeed met all requirements.

Please read the information under “Quick Links” and “Notes & Reminders” below before you dive right in. 

Future weeks' Standby slots will be added to the Referee Schedule on a weekly basis, 3-5 days before each game day.

Click here for a detailed explanation of the Standby program.

(updated 8/16/2022)  The Referee Self-Scheduling program will be available only to those volunteer referees who:

1. Are registered AYSO Volunteers for the current MY2022 season (via Sports Connect; click here for detailed instructions) and who have a completed, satisfactory background check (Risk Status = Green for Adults, Blue for Youths).
2. Have completed online AYSO Safe HavenConcussion Awareness, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest training and are up-to-date (some require renewal) according to SportsConnect via AYSOU; click here for detailed instructions)
3. Have completed online SafeSport training (adults only); click here for detailed instructions, under SafeSport
4. Have completed Fingerprinting (adult only) via an AYSO-approved fingerprinting site. See THIS PAGE for more information.
5. Are AYSO-certified as a 8U Referee, Regional Referee, Intermediate Referee, Advanced Referee, or National Referee.  Click here for details about 8U and Regional Referee training.

If you are unable to login to the self-scheduling program, it may be because you are not current with one of the above requirements.

To check your certifications:
1.  Login to Sports Connect
2.  Go to your Account, then click on the Volunteers tab (left side of the screen).  
If you are a returning volunteer then you should see your Risk Status and your most recent certifications listed here.  New certifications will also appear here as completed for all Volunteers.

Be sure to update all of these items as soon as possible, then let Chuck Huffer know so that we can restore your access to the self-scheduling program.  Restoring your access is a manual process, so give Chuck a little time to respond to your e-mail.


(Updated 8/5/2021) You may sign up for Standby assignments if they are available. They will be available when all of the "Ranking 4" (AR for 10U and 12U) are completely filled. Standby assignments are those with "Stby" in the Field # column of the self-scheduling program.
Standby Assignments require one's presence at the Ref Tent for the entire 1.25 hours. Standby Assignments require the Referee to be in full uniform available to substitute for an absent or injured referee, or to handle other Ref Tent duties as needed.

Notes & Reminders

Make sure that you are in our Referee Scheduling Database!
Whether you are a brand new U8 (includes U7) or Regional Referee or you have been refereeing in Region 9 for years, you must check to make sure you are in our database:

  1. Look up your AYSO Volunteer ID# in Blue Sombrero at www.ayso9.org. You must be registered as an AYSO Volunteer before you can referee any AYSO games.
  2. Go to our Referee database web page. Please note this is NOT Blue Sombrero! Click here for detailed instructions.
  3. Type in your AYSO ID# and last name in the top box and click on the Search button.
  4. If you are the person listed in the “Is this you?” box, click on your AYSO ID# (in blue).
    • Review all of the information we have, and update as necessary.
    • We especially want to be sure that we have correct contact info (e-mail address, phone number); your correct AYSO referee badge level; and an appropriate Referee Rating.
    • Contact the Region 9 Referee Administrator if you feel your Referee Rating should be changed.
  5. If this is not you, or there is no name listed then you will need to create a new record in our database.
    • Complete the form “Edit existing Referee data, or Add data for a Referee new to this database” and click on the Add button at the bottom of the form.
    • All information marked with a red star (*) is required before your application can be accepted.
    • Be sure to write down your username & password; you will need these for the referee self-scheduling program.

7U and 8U Team Referees should only be signing up for their child’s 7U or 8U game.

10U, 12U, 14U and Extra Team Referees will get credit for their Team (1 point per assignment) by signing up for 10U, 12U, 14U, Extra or Adult games for which you are qualified. You do not get credit if you sign for a 7U or 8U game!
Also, if you are a Team Referee for more than 1 team, you must sign up for and complete 1 Center or 1 AR assignment per week for EACH team you represent. Signing up for 2 assignments on the same game or at the same time will not work!
