Referee Training - Fall 2021
Every team, 8U-16U, must have a referee to officiate home games

I am Greg Giron, the Referee Instructor for AYSO Carson City 2/F/140 and an Advanced Referee for AYSO. ([email protected])

Thank you for volunteering to referee the beautiful game of soccer for the youth in our community. Your efforts make our community a better place to live! The Laws of the Game require a referee for all matches (games). Without you, there's no match!

  • AYSO’s Safe Haven (30 minutes)
  • CDC HEADS UP Concussion Training (30 minutes)

Referee Update Sessions

Referee Update Sessions
For All Returning Referees and New 8U Referees

There are changes in the Laws of the Game the 2021/22 season.

Anyone interested in the Laws of the Game (LOTG) can go to your app store on your phone and download the IFAB Laws of the Game for free. To understand how AYSO is implementing relevant changes, please attend one of the Referee Update Sessions.

Referee Update sessions are for all referees and for all parents.
  1. Referees should know and understand the updated Laws of the Game 2021/22 before the season starts.
  2. Referees and parents should know and understand the how the updated Laws of the Game 2021/22 affect short-sided games or how AYSO will implement the LOTG for our children’s games, so everyone will know what to expect during a game.
  3. Parents may attend any Referee Update Session
  4. Returning Referees must attend at least one Referee Update if they plan to Referee this season or join us for any of the Referee Courses (a healthy refresher)
Referee Update Sessions are at:
