AYSL is looking for volunteer youth referees for the 2023 season!

For older players who are looking to expand their knowledge of the game and have fun doing it, consider volunteering to be a referee.  Referees are provided with a shirt and whistle and can sign up for Saturday games that meet their schedules (we do not schedule weekday game referees). Referees must be at least 8 years old and must be 2 years older than the Division they are refereeing (ie 8 year olds can referee U7 games, where players are 6; 9 year olds can referee U7 or U8, and so on).

All referees must attend one of two referee clinics held as follows:

  • Wednesday, August 30 at 6pm at Stroney Field

  • Saturday, September 2 at 9:30am on the turf field

Please pre-register via the link below to be placed on the referee mailing list to sign up for games

Please contact AYS's Referee Coordinator, Emma Dyska, with any questions.
