Ref Stats

  • Referee requirements this year have changed.  Here is the update on the requirements with links to access referee points for each team by division.

    Referees are an integral part of the game of soccer. In order to facilitate a positive AYSO experience for the youth in our region, we strive to provide certified referees for each game at 10U and above. Our goal is to provide three referees for the competitive divisions: 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 19U. To achieve this goal we need in excess of 150 referee slots to be filled each week. In order to ensure that we have the referee slots filled, we need each team to provide us with volunteer referees. For the past several years Region 137 has used a point system to reward teams that supply certified referees for our games. Each team is asked to supply at least one referee (preferably three, preferably new, and preferably not including the coach) for the season. It is very important for parents to volunteer for this opportunity. Points earned by each team’s certified referees are added together and qualify the team for secondary season play (Region Playoffs and beyond).

    All teams are required to achieve a minimum of 20 referee points by the end of the regular season in order to play in Region Playoffs. NO EXCEPTIONS. The team will be required to fulfill 9 referee spots during the Regional Playoffs in order to qualify for Area Playoffs. Teams who do not meet the requirements will not be allowed to advance into Area tournament play. NO EXCEPTIONS. Teams will need to provide referees at the Area Playoffs as well to cover games the Region is responsible for.

    ● Each referee earns 1/2 point per game for 6U & 8U. Assistant referees do not earn points for 6U/8U.
    ● Each referee earns 1 point per game & assistant referee (AR) earns 1/2 point per game for 10U & 12U.
    ● Each referee earns 2 point per game& assistant referee (AR) earns 1 point per game for 14U games.
    ● Each referee earns 3 point per game& assistant referee (AR) earns 2 points per game for 16U & 19U games

    ● Be certified. Referee classes are free and are typically offered at 3-4 times at the beginning of the fall season.
    ● Be in uniform. Region 137 will provide an acceptable uniform at no cost.
    ● Have a current signed and accepted volunteer form on file with Region 137 for the current MY and have completed Safe Haven, Safe Sport, CDC Concussion, Cardiac Arrest

  •  If you need to earn referee points for your team, we encourage you to sign up to ref games on game days or do so in advance using our referee scheduler at this link: Referee Scheduler

    Below are links to shared Google Sheet documents for each division which shows referee points for teams within that division.  The teams are separated by tabs at the bottom of each Google Sheet.  The cumulative referee point total for each team can be found on the top-right column in red.
