Youth Referee Class: Pacific Palisades
Sunday May, 19th

How to sign up

There are 5 steps that need to happen BEFORE the class on May 19. (It’s not as complicated as you think/it looks with the step-by-step instructions below).

Step 1

Register your youth referee with Region 20 inLeague as an AYSO “youth volunteer” for Region 20 (this is different than registering them as a “player”).

  • Go to
  • Login using your adult login
  • Click on “Player and Volunteer Registration”
  • Under “User Accounts and Volunteer Registration” you would click “Add New User”
  • Add your youth volunteer (needs their own email address and their own password—these will be used when they are trying to self-schedule for referee slots in the Fall)
  • Complete the registration process for them as a volunteer for region 20
  • When asked for “Volunteer Role” please click “Youth Referee” (NOT “Referee”)

Step 2

Register your youth referee as a Youth Volunteer with (National AYSO) for MY2018. (not MY2019)

    Click “I want to do my part as an AYSO youth volunteer”   Click “Next”
    Next page you will enter the youth’s info as asked (first name, last name, phone)—make sure you are consistent with the names used (careful with spelling, don’t mix in nick names, shortened names, etc.) especially when you go to sign up for classes later on AYSOU—be sure to use the same name(s)
    For instance, don’t mix up “Mike and Michael” or “Bob and Robert” between the websites
    Be consistent with the eAYSO registration and the AYSOU account–which you did in the first step
  • Next page you will set up the eAYSO account (again, you will use this same info later for when you go to to create an account and then sign up for classes)

  • But wait, there’s a couple more things to do:
    • You should click on the name of your child (in blue?) and you’ll be shown a copy of the app to print (and/or save to your desktop)
    • If you are routed away from this page, get back to it and at the bottom see and click the “Completed” button. THIS IS KEY!!!
