Referee Self-Scheduling Program

Please read the information under “Quick Links” and “Notes & Reminders” below before you dive right in.  Future weeks' Standbys 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 8/26/2021)  The Referee Self-Scheduling program will be available only to those volunteer referees who:

1. are registered AYSO Volunteers for the current MY2021 season (via Sports Connect; click here for detailed instructions) and who have a completed, satisfactory background check (Risk Status = Green for adults)
2. 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.
3. have completed online AYSO Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest training in 2020 or 2021 (via AYSOU; click here for detailed instructions)

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 only if you have already signed up for a Center or AR assignment on that same date.  Standby assignments are those with "Stby" in the Field # column of the self-scheduling program.
If you are a Team Referee for a 10U, 12U, or 14U team you can get an additional one (1) referee point for your team for that week if you have completed your Center or AR assignment for that date and if you have checked in at the referee tent at least 15 minutes before your scheduled Standby assignment, properly uniformed and equipped, and available for any unfilled Center or AR spot for which you are qualified.

Notes & Reminders

Make sure that you are in our Referee Scheduling Database!
Whether you are a brand new U8 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 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 bonus point per week) 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!
