Referee Resources

It is the coach’s responsibility to be in possession of the Medical Release Forms at all practices and games. Referees are not required, nor recommended, to ask coaches to prove that they have players’ Medical Release Forms in their possession at games. Referees should not require coaches to produce the forms at matches as this would, in effect, put the referee in the position of assuming a responsibility that properly belongs with the coach.

Report all incidents in which a coach or a spectator behaves in a way that makes a game something other than a safe, positive, enjoyable growth experience for the children to your Referee Coordinator or Referee Administrator.

The online Regional Referee Training can help cut the classroom time by providing you the opportunity to complete the course at your own pace and in your own home.  All new referees then have to do is take the in-person Online Companion Course component in order to take the certification exam.  Many of those who have played the game and think they know the Laws of the Game are surprised to find out how much there is to learn when they actually start studying to become a referee. Attending a face to face training course with an experienced instructor is a valuable learning experience.

RMS Information & Updates

The AYSO Membership Fee (formerly known as the National Player Fee) is a non-refundable and non-transferable member fee to participate in AYSO. Membership in AYSO is required for each Membership Year (8/1 – 7/31) before a member may participate in any AYSO program or event. This fee entitles the member to all benefits for that membership year, including:

  • Membership Player ID Card
  • Annual subscription to the PLAYSOCCER Magazine
  • Newsletters
  • Soccer Accident Insurance
  • Special offers and discounts
  • Access to the AYSO Player website channel (Coming Soon)

All fields required by AYSO National are locked down as required, and automatically appear as required fields in Blue Sombrero. All fields that aren’t required by AYSO National are automatically set to Not Required. These questions can be set to Required if the admin chooses to do so.

No, admin will need to manually enter player rankings into Blue Sombrero’s system.

No. Player information cannot be edited after a player is created. This is to ensure player information matches the player’s AYSO ID. If information needs to be edited because it has been entered incorrectly, the admin can email aysosupport@bluesombrero.com with the information that needs to be changed.

Yes, a parent can invite any number of parents, guardians, grandparents or sitters to be linked to a player’s ID.

There will not be data transfer to Blue Sombrero. All the historical data will remain in eAYSO and all new information will be updated from Blue Sombrero through Application Program Interfaces (APIs).

  • Certifications: Certifications will continue to be associated with the volunteer record when the volunteer applies on Blue Sombrero.
  • Player Ratings: Player Ratings will not transfer from eAYSO to the new player record. Any player ratings stored in Blue Sombrero will stay associated with that player season to season and they can be used in automatic team assignment.
  • Player/Volunteer history: All player and volunteer information will continue to update in eAYSO.

Safety Policies, Forms, & Insurance

Because injuries arising out of playing the sport of soccer or other activities associated with soccer such as practices, games, pre- and post- game activities, related non-athletic activities are considered part of the sport and excluded from our General Liability coverage. AYSO and its insurance carrier insures for activities related to its operations, not private incidents between two players or volunteers.

Agents are looking for two things. Firstly, that the AYSO ID is valid and exists in the AYSO membership database? And secondly, is the player or volunteer registered for the season in which the injury occurred?
