Adults (18 and older) complete the AYSO Safe Haven course.
Safe Haven is required child and volunteer protection training. The Concussion training is found within the Safe Haven section at http://www.aysotraining.org/. You will need your eayso ID to register. See info: Safe Haven/Concussion
Complete the Basic Referee Course (8 hours of training. Some courses are online + in person, some are in person only). You will need to pass a written test, achieving a score of 75% or better. If your course requires the Basic Referee Online Companion, see info: See info: Referee Course
**Currently no courses scheduled in Region 96**
Be sure to coordinate your attendance with our Regional Referee Administrator as Region 96 will pay your registration fee(s).
Need a little help or are you preparing for an assessment to upgrade your badge? Request a mentor to help you. The Area Q Referee Mentor program is where you can obtain some feedback on your game in an informal mentoring session.
It's simple to request a mentor. When you reserve your game in Matchtrak, just click the radio button which says "Request a Mentor". This will email our mentor crew and they will sign up for the game in Matchtrak as well. You can do this for either CR or AR positions - wherever you feel you need some help.
Obtaining a mentor session where you are the CR can fulfill all or part of your training requirements for any incentive programs.
