Welcome New and Returning Truckee AYSO Referees!!

Hi all! We need your help! Without a referee our kids’ games are just scrimmages. AYSO trainings teach you everything you need to know to be successful! All you need is a desire to help, we will handle the rest. We know at first, that refereeing can seem intimidating and we are here for you! At AYSO we foster a culture of positive coaches, positive spectators and fun for kids. AYSO’s mission is to enrich children's’ lives and referees are a HUGE part of the equation. Referees are at our games to make them “safe, fair and fun”. We have a level of referee for you! Whether it’s refereeing 8U kids, being an Assistant Referee or being a Referee for our older kids, we need you!! We are currently recruiting new and returning referees for the Fall 2021 season, see below. 


Our returning Referee Instructor, Steve Anderson, is extremely motivated to put a trained referee at every game. Steve is an Intermediate Referee/Referee Trainer, Coach and dedicated Truckee soccer parent, and is excited to work with our youth and parents to continue to take our referee program to the next level. Steve has developed incentives for youth and adult referees and will be holding a pre-season meeting and mid-season meeting to gather our referees for support, food and fun. Being a referee is a great way to give back to the Truckee Soccer Community that allows you to pick up games whenever you can. With our easy schedule system, you can simply pick and choose the games you can help with. You can reach Steve by email with any questions, any time, at [email protected]. Training dates are posted below!
