Content

Welcome to the Region 1258 Referees' Corner. The purpose of the Referees' Corner is to provide insight to the many volunteer referees, coaches and parents who have accepted the responsibility of teaching our children the game of soccer through proper application and enforcement of the Laws of the game. The Referee's' Corner should be used as a reference point for any and all issues associated with refereeing and the Laws of the game. Please submit any and all inquiries to our Region Referee Administrator through the box below and check back often for updates.

Words of Wisdom From Our Referee Administrator

LIVE IN A WAY SO WHEN CHILDREN THINK OF FAIRNESS, CARING, INTEGRITY, HONESTY, VALUES, TRUTH, DIGNITY AND HONOR, THEY, THINK OF YOU.

NO WINS OR CHAMPIONSHIPS OF ANY KIND, THOUGH IMPORTANT, PERHAPS, ARE BY ANY MEANS GREATER THAN LIFE.

ALL OF US REFEREES, COACHES, INSTRUCTORS AND ADMINISTRATORS CAN USE THE PLATFORM GIVEN TO US TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION AND A REAL DIFFERENCE.

SPORTS OFTEN ARE ABOUT WHO IS THE BEST AND WHAT SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE FEAT CAN BE ACHIEVED. BUT, IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, I DO NOT BELIEVE SPORTS WERE MEANT TO BE ONLY THAT.

SPORTS REALLY ARE ABOUT ENCOURAGING, INSPIRING AND TOUCHING HEARTS.

THEY ARE ABOUT MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND HELPING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT ONE CAN GET THROUGH A DIFFICULT SITUATION OR THAT ONE CAN ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING EVEN THOUGH EVERYONE ELSE BELIEVES OTHERWISE.

SPORTS ARE ABOUT SAYING "I CAN" OR "I WILL", INSTEAD OF "I CAN'T" OR "I PROBABLY WON'T".

SPORTS ARE, BY THEIR VERY NATURE, A GREAT WAY TO INSPIRE AND BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER.

IT IS NOT WHAT YOU ACHIEVE IN LIFE THAT HAS THE GREATEST IMPORTANCE. WHAT REALLY COUNTS IS WHETHER OR NOT YOU LEAVE A LEGACY IN WHICH PEOPLE WERE ENCOURAGED AND INSPIRED AND IN WHICH HEARTS WERE TOUCHED.

SO, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET US NOT REPLACE OUR SPIRIT WTH AN ATTITUDE OF "WINNING AT ALL COSTS" OR BEING "NUMBER ONE NO MATTER WHAT."

SOCCER IS A GAME AND, AS SUCH, SHOULD PROVIDE ENJOYMENT TO THE PARTICIPANTS. IT SHOULD NOT BRING STRESS, NOT SADNESS, NOT DISAPPOINTMENT, NOT FRUSTRATION, AND MOST OF ALL, NOT ANGER.

IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IN TODAY'S WORLD, TRYING TO OUT DO THE NEXT GUY HAS BECOME A KIND OF CRAZED COMPETITION THAT CAN ONLY END UP IN IMPOTENT LUNACY

HOW MUCH ONE GROWS AND LEARNS AND CREATES IS THE ONLY TRUE YARDSTICK OF SUCCESS WE SHOULD RECOGNIZE. SUCCESS IS INSIDE OF US. WE CAN ALL BE WINNERS WITHOUT "WINNING."

LET US ALL WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF OUR CHILDREN SO THAT WE DO NOT BECOME ANOTHER TESTIMONIAL THAT THE WORD "SUCCESS" IS SLOWLY BUT SURELY BECOMING THE FALSEST GOD IN LIFE.

Refereeing in AYSO is a challenging and rewarding volunteer experience. Here is an opportunity for you to join the kids on the pitch as they learn to love the “Beautiful Game”. You’ll have a great time and get some exercise too! We need AYSO refereeing is available for youth and adult volunteers. Kids as young as 11 years old are permitted to officiate matches in the 8U division. As the kids enter high school, they have opportunities to manage more challenging matches and even earn community service credits as AYSO referees. Refereeing in AYSO is a terrific way to help kids learn responsibility, build self-confidence, and possibly even begin to build a career. Just as there are professional soccer players who started out as kids in AYSO, there are also professional soccer referees who started out as kids in AYSO.
