Region 42 Referee Clinics and Training

The information below describes the regional Referee Clinics and training for the 2018–19 season.
10U+ Referee volunteers (Adults 18+ yrs old earning Referee Points or Youths 12+ yrs old NOT earning Ref Points) should complete 1, 2, 3 & 4.

1. Yearly Volunteer Registration

MANDATORY for all referees EACH year! Complete the online volunteer registration. Note: Volunteer registration is now done through the Region 42 website and the process for registering as a volunteer has changed from prior years. ALL volunteers MUST complete the registration process including signing the volunteer registration with an E-Signatures. New referees only must print out one copy and have their IDs checked when they turn it in to their coach or the referee staff. Returning referees only need to complete the online registration.

2. CDC Concussion Awareness Training

  • MANDATORY for ALL referees every three membership years. For 2018, this means if you last took this 7/31/16 or earlier, you must do it again this year.
  • When: Any time prior to start of season
  • Where: AYSOU. Log in with the same username and password you use for this site.

3. Safe Haven Online Training

  • MANDATORY for ALL referees every three membership years. For 2018, this means if you last took this 7/31/16 or earlier, you must do it again this year.
  • When: Anytime. Complete prior to training and bring printed certificate to training
  • Where: AYSOU. Log in with the same username and password you use for this site.

4. Basic ("Regional") Referee Clinic (Two dates – pick one)

This course is required for all referees to officiate games at the 7U to 10U level.

  • For adult referees (18+ years old) earning referee points, or youths (12–17 years old) NOT earning referee points.
  • When: Saturday, August 18, 2018 or Saturday, August 25, 2018. Both clinics go from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
  • Where: Sequoia Boys & Girls Club (at Sequoia Middle School).
  • Register: AYSOU. Log in with the same username and password you use for this site. If course is not listed yet, please check again later.
  • Bring: Pen/pencil and a note pad.

If you are unable to attend either of these dates, you may take the class in another region. However, if you take it outside of Area 10E, V, or W, you may be required to pay a fee (please ask the course instructor; Region 42 will reimburse the cost). Please see AYSOU for full course listings.

5. Online Basic Referee Training

Although we prefer it if you come to an in-person training class, we realize that not everyone has the time available to commit to an all-day class. An online option is available on AYSOU, but it still requires a shorter in-person class. The online course may be found in the "eCommerce" section of AYSOU (see screenshot). There is a fee for the course which you will have to pay, but Region 42 will reimburse you for it. After you complete the online portion, you must register and attend the "Regional Referee Online Companion Course". Region 42 does not offer this, but some of our neighbors do.

6. 8U Official Clinic

The clinic for 8U Officials is no longer being offered in Newbury Park, but neighboring regions still have it. Please see AYSOU to find one that best fits your schedule.

7. Offside Workshop

Regional referees who wish to be assistant referee at 12U games may do so after taking an additional offside clinic course. Please see the Offside Workshop page for more details.

8. Intermediate/Advanced/National Referee Clinics

An Intermediate badge is required to be center referee for 12U games, an Advanced badge is required for 14U/16U games, and a National badge is required for 19U games.

Region 42 does not offer these referee courses, and they only offered a few times throughout the year. However, if you take it outside of Area 10E, V, or W, you may be required to pay a fee (please ask the course instructor; Region 42 will reimburse the cost). Please check AYSOU for listings.

Unlike the Regional badge, to earn any of these badges, passing the course by itself is not enough. After you pass the test, you will be an Intermediate/Advanced/National candidate, and then you must officiate a number of games before you pass an evaluation during an actual game by a qualified assessor. If you are interested in furthering your referee training, please contact Bill Seixas, the referee administrator.
