AYSO provides volunteers with Referee training in two parts, the first part is on line at AYSOU and the second is in person training.

Here is a link to U.S. Soccer Referee info.

OK, now let’s talk about Referees and cost locally:

Local Referee contacts:

Area 6B Dan Kegley  [email protected] 715 220 0743

AYSO referees are Volunteers and as such the IRS does not allow us to pay referees for services rendered, however, AYSO can provide volunteers (referees, coaches, board members) with a stipend to reimburse them for the cost of volunteering.  Each AYSO region can determine what that cost is and how much a stipend should be for any volunteer and account for that in their annual budgets for their regions.

Here are some AYSO forms for you to download and use

All AYSO regions may hire an independent contractor that specializes in refereeing as their business and therefore taking on all liability, training, expenses and such with running their independent contractor business.  You must have a contract that defines the terms and pay them for services rendered and report it to the IRS.  Please go to and read the information on paying for services.

OK, now on to our recreational league.  I don’t know of any teams that have paid for referee over the years, we have just traveled to each other’s towns and scrimmaged with each other.  I know here in Region 1236 we provide our referees a stipend when they referee games in Amery and Clayton, so we cover any cost for the games as a region.  I’m assuming that we all will take on our own cost per club for these scrimmages and not charge the individual teams

WYSA fee structure can be found here 

Email me at [email protected] with some pictures of your referees during your games.  Lets give them a place to come and see some great pictures of them refereeing and give them credit for what they do.

Thank you,
