This training is designed for BRAND NEW REFEREES who have not reffed with the AYSA before and plan start reffing during our Fall & Lower Division in August-October.  New referees need to attend an AYSA Basic Referee course, offered in June and July. (2014 Clinic dates will be added below after April 1st).  Referees are required to register with the AYSA, but not with the State Association. There are no registration fees, and all clinics are free.
Our Fall training program requires referees to complete two distinct parts: 1) 2½, (or 5-hours) of classroom instruction; and 2) a outdoor Onfield training.  This training is for new referees who plan to start refereeing in August during our Lower Division and Fall programs.  Those seasons start on August 1st, and finish in mid-October. 
Instead of one 5 hour classroom instruction, new referees will attend their training in two separate sessions.  The first 2½-hour class know as Part A, will include all the information a referee will need to be certified to referee U8 and U10 games.  The 2nd 2½-hour session, Part B, will cover the topics a referee needs to Center referee and Assistant Referee for U12-U15 Fall games.  So, in order to referee just U8-U10 level games, a referee would only need to attend a Part A class, plus their Onfield Training session.
 Field trainings will be scheduled in late July & early August after referees complete their classroom work.  Onfield Training dates will be announce and arranged, and will be available after you register for your class and complete your classroom training.  There will be several formal field dates scheduled before the Fall season begins, and during the first two weeks of August.
