Regional Referee Course 10U to 12U (also called Basic Referee Course)

Regional Referee Certification for 10U to 12U is for new referees and for 8U Officials moving up.
 
Fall 2017 classes are in AYSOU for signup (see instructions below).
 
Regional Referee Course (not offered in 2017 in Palo Alto)
also known as Basic Referee course
This course covers the full Laws of the Game.   It is offered over three days.  You must attend all days, plus take the Regional Referee written exam, which is offered on the third day. You must be a registered volunteer and you must pass the exam by a score of 75% or better. 

The standard Regional Referee Course will not be offered in fall 2017 in Palo Alto. 
 
When multiple classes are offered in Palo Alto, they will follow the same structure.  You may mix and match the days of the course to suit your schedule.  For example, take Session 1 the first week, and Session 2 and the Exam on the second week.  You must, however, take Session 1, Session 2, and the Exam in that order.  In AYSOU, register for the first course that you will attend.
 
Regional Referee Online Companion Course (RROCC) 
also known as Basic Referee Online Companion Course (BROCC)
This shortened, single classroom session course requires you to follow the same steps as for the regular course in order to receive your badge.  You must additionally complete the 1.5-2 hour online "Regional Referee Training" at AYSOU (first you have to purchase it for $7 under the "eCommerce" tab, then you will find it under the "My Courses" tab"prior to the classroom session.
Bring comfortable clothes for the outside session. This is not a strenuous activity, but we recommend tennis or running shoes. The outdoor session gives you practical experience in making calls on the field in a game situation. This will make your first games more comfortable and enjoyable, for both you and the kids! The outdoor session is included at the recommendation of our current and former students. Courses offered at other regions may or may not have the same outdoor session.
 
The Regional Referee Online Companion Course (RROCC) will be offered at the following times in Palo Alto, in fall, 2017, at Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto:

Registering for a Course:

Find courses at AYSOU after you are registered as a volunteer and have your Blue Sombrero login. Log in to AYSOU, select the "Live Courses" menu item, select the "Sessions" button for the "Regional Referee Online Companion Course", scroll down through the classes, which are listed by date, until you find the one you want, and select the "Register" button.

 
Which course should I take: the Regional Referee Course or RROCC?
If you are already familiar with soccer laws of the game, are short on time for classroom sessions, or like online training, you will tend to take RROCC.  If you want more time to ask questions of an instructor or prefer in-person training you will tend to take the more established Regional Referee Course.
Follow these steps to complete the process and receive your badge in a timely manner.
  1. Everyone must register as a volunteer with AYSO every year. Register hereIn 2017, register as a new volunteer, even if you have registered before on eAYSO.org (we no longer use eAYSO.org for registration).
    • If you use the same full name that you used on eAYSO to register in the new system, then the system should pick up your old certifications and you won't lose things. But you still have to re-enter things you did in the past (e.g. references, etc.).
    • Once you start the registration process, make sure you always scroll to the bottom of the page to find the "continue" button.
    • Make sure you click on any box that is dark green on the page. There may be things you need to approve before going forward.
    • Make sure you "e-sign" the form at the conclusion. That's a step that some often miss.
  2. Register for your Regional Referee Course or Regional Referee Online Companion Course (choose one of these--see descriptions to the left) at AYSOU as early as possible.  The instructions are on the Referee Clinic Schedule page.  Check back at this page just before your class for any late-breaking information.
  3. Complete online "AYSO's Safe Haven" and "CDC: Concussion Course" at AYSOU (under the "My Courses" tab") before coming to the class. It takes a few hours total to get through these courses.
  4. Complete the online "Regional Referee Training" at AYSOU (first you have to purchase it for $7 under the "eCommerce" tab, then you will find it under the "My Courses" tab") if you will be taking the Regional Referee Online Companion Course, or if you want to be better prepared for the Basic Referee Course.  It takes 1.5 to 2 hours to get through this course.
  5. Arrive five minutes early to your classroom course.  The course is compressed for your convenience, but you must take all the modules to get credit for the course.
  6. Bring pencil and paper for note taking.
  7. Bring your water bottle.  We will have additional water and snacks available.
Referee uniforms and equipment will be distributed during the class.
 
Please be sure to complete the online "Regional Referee Training" at AYSOU  before attending the  Regional Referee Online Companion Course classroom session.  THANK YOU!
  
Receiving your badge: If you have completed registration and training and pass the exam, you will receive your badge at the end of the class, and you will be fully prepared to referee an  AYSO 10/12U game.  Otherwise, when all requirements are complete please send an email to rdri@ayso26.org including your name, address, AYSO ID Number, and class title and date, and your badge will be mailed to you.  Or if you are from another region you can alternatively obtain your badge from your region officials.
 
Withdrawing from the Course
If you have signed up but will not be able to make it, please withdraw from the course using instructions at the bottom of the Referee Classes page.

** "But it's the night before the class?  What do I do?": If you are going to the 3-evening Basic Referee Course, just show up anyway and we will walk you through things.  If you are going to the Regional Referee Online Companion Course, you are out of luck.  You have to take the online course before you come to the class.
