Referee

The trouble with referees is that they just don’t care which side wins.

Referees are an integral part of any soccer program. In AYSO Area 1-C, our referees devote much time to learning the Laws of the Game and the proper application of those laws and they do it all without compensation. Referees are there to make sure the match is safe, fair and fun for all involved. Win or lose, please thank them for their service.

New IFAB Laws of the Game as of June 1

by Scott Davis on June 25, 2016

As most of us have already heard, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) released a new edition of the Laws of the Game that became effective June 1, 2016.  The release by IFAB has gotten a lot of exposure in the press and internet but the reality is there are very few changes that will effect AYSO youth matches.  That said, as dedicated coach and referee volunteers, we want to familiarize ourselves with the changes before our next practice or game.

AYSO National is conducting a series of webinars to aid training and the fall Upper Division Coach and Referee meetings will address the new edition.  If you want to get a jump on that training, take a look at the following link.  It has a lot of good information and will be updated as additional questions are asked and answered.
