September 2nd – 25th: 50% of registration fee will be refunded if player withdraws and completes Refund Request Form between Sept 2-25.

If the Fall 2021 season must be canceled before it starts due to new government health and safety restrictions related to COVID-19, full refunds will be provided. If the season must be canceled or severely curtailed after the season starts, AYSO Region 20 will update this refund policy to take into account those circumstances.
Region 20 is returning to live matches starting September 18th, and we will be needing PARENT VOLUNTEER REFEREES (and YOUTH VOLUNTEER REFEREES) to officiate these matches.
If you are already a certified match official, all you need to do is re-register to be a volunteer for the MY2021 season. Go to your inLeague account and register for MY2021. Make sure you have taken the newly required “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” course on www.aysou.org which is found under Online Courses–>Safe Haven Courses.
If you are NOT a certified referee yet, you will need to take the Regional Referee Course, but first you’ll need to register as a VOLUNTEER on your inLeague account. Make sure you check the “referee” box as a preference. If you have questions about this process please reach out to me at email@example.com There will be an on-line referee course and an in-person classroom session to become a certified referee/assistant referee. There are also a few required online safety courses to take.
We will hold a Referee Refresher meeting as we get closer to the season, but for now please visit The IFAB website for the newest version of the LOTG. It’s a newly updated website: https://www.theifab.com/
Also, if you have a YOUTH (12-18 years old) who would be interested in participating as a referee or assistant referee and earn valuable referee points for the team of their choice, or earn those Community Service Hours, we will be holding referee class specifically geared to this age group. Please reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming Referee Refreshers and Regional Referee Courses!

AYSO United is the Club Program of American Youth Soccer Organization. United is designed to complete the AYSO Player Development Pathway, allowing players to play competitive soccer under AYSO’s Six Philosophies. AYSO United players will experience a positive, developmentally-appropriate environment, where they will not only develop in practice but during the game, where they are guaranteed 50% play. United is a year round program designed to help players reach their full potential while playing meaningful games in competitive leagues and selected tournaments.
The Los Angeles AYSO United Club currently has 11 teams and has produced two Cal South State Cup Champions in both the Girls 2007 & 2008 Divisions. Santa Monica AYSO is hosting a Westside hub of the LA Club, currently hosting a boys 2005 and girls 2004 club. The teams practice at JAMS and uses Samohi as its home field. We have a strong player pathway with our Core, Extra and United team continually producing some of the top talent in Southern California.
Ted Quong and Gerhard Benthin coach the two teams. Ted, a long-time Santa Monica volunteer and a member of our board, played in AYSO throughout his teenage years and was on the U14 Super Team that won the Pepsi Cola State Championship representing Region 10. Gerhard Benthin has spent 25 years throughout the United States instructing in major Soccer camps, clinics, clubs, high schools, group and individual lessons. His knowledge and experience of coaching in both positions certainly sets him apart from other soccer coaches and has built a reputation of making soccer training simple, yet highly effective with intense practice. Coach Benthin’s passion and love for the game is truly infectious. Through his career, Gerhard Benthin has been coaching at the highest level professional teams, such as L.A. Galaxy MLS, Brazil and the National Team U17.
