Referee Clinic Schedule

Volunteers may use training clinics from other Regions
 and we welcome volunteers from our neighboring Regions to our clinics. 
Thank you for volunteering.  
We look forward to seeing you at the training.

Be Sure To Check Out Golden Gate Camp
Online Training, different from clinics, can be accessed using your eAYSO ID number with this button.  This includes Safe Haven, Management, and lower division Coach and Referee courses.  It is best to take the Online Training and the Clinic.

The table below shows which Referee Certification you need. Courses are described in more detail at Referee Classes.
Most clinics are free.  When not free, Palo Alto volunteers are reimbursed for pre-approved training fees.  If you have a problem signing up for a course or you are seeking pre-approval for fee reimbursement, email one of the following persons.
