AYSO Area 2J


Welcome to Area 2J Referee page and thank you very much for volunteering and helping young players play Safer & Fairer soccer. Volunteer trained referees are important to provide high-quality games and share their knowledge of the laws of soccer with players, coaches, and spectators. With the help of coaches and parents, referees make the AYSO experience safe, fair, and fun.

Why you should become a referee: change the world and change your life
