Referee Incentives

 

Referees are a crucial component of AYSO. Every U10 and above game requires three referees and sometimes those are hard to find. We would like to acknowledge the hard work of so many referees that go above and beyond the minimum required. Each week, to ensure we secure enough referees throughout the season we limit the amount of points each team can earn toward their total. We do however realize that so many of you go beyond that. To reward those top earners, this season, we are awarding:

  1. The Top 10 Referees who officiate the most games will be given a referee bag.
  2. The Top 5 Referees who officiate the most games will be given a referee jacket.
  3. The Top 5 Teams officiating the most games will be awarded a $50 Gift Certificate towards a team party at Johnny's Tacos.

Hot Weather!

 

Hot weather is here! Players, Coaches, Referees & Parents of AYSO all have responsibilities to ensure the youth of AYSO can enjoy the excitement of the game while maintaining physical safety.

Player's Responsibility – Players must drink fluids before they are thirsty. Heat exhaustion & heat stroke can be prevented. Players - keep your coach informed as to how you are feeling.

Coach's Responsibility – Coaches must make every effort to ensure that all participants remain well hydrated & monitored for signs of heat stress. During games that are played in extreme heat, a coach can request additional substitutions, encourage players to drink water during games, & modify player positions to prevent heat complications.

Referee's Responsibility – Referees, while maintaining compliance with both the spirit & laws of the game, can work to control the flow of the game in such a way to ease the exertion levels required in physical activity. Referees can remind players to drink water during the game, from the sideline during play. Referees should remind players about hydration before the start of play & monitor players for their general condition.

Parent's Responsibility – Parents are reminded that they are ultimately responsible for the safety of their children. If, at any time, for any reason, the parent feels the child is in danger during participation in a game, they should remove their child from that activity.

Important Coaching Certification

 

U-6, U-8, U-10 and U-12 Coach Training Required for Fall

All AYSO coaches in the U-6, U-8, U-10, U-12, and U-14 divisions are now required to have age-appropriate training and AYSO Safe Haven certification when they take the field. It is a part of AYSO's coach training policy.

The coach training policy debuted in August 2010 with U-6 requirements, and will continue to roll forward each year adding one additional level of required age-specific coach training until, by the 2015 membership year, every AYSO coach and assistant coach at every level will be appropriately trained for the team they will coach.

U-14 coaches have until Aug. 1, 2014 to receive proper training.

These important steps will help ensure that every player has the best possible AYSO experience. If you have any questions, contact the Coaching Department.

Referee Zero Tolerance Policy

 

Redlands AYSO has adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy for ALL referees in order to preserve and protect them. Redlands AYSO recognizes the hard work and dedication that all of our volunteer referees put forth and want to keep them in the region as long as we can. They have a very difficult position and try their best to officiate the games of our players. Please read read the policy here.
