Mira Mesa - AYSO Region 285


It's About What's Good For The Kids

AYSO Region 285 is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, referees and administrators are volunteers who lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific soccer experience.

Our volunteer foundation's central mission is to enrich the lives of children. It also makes our region very affordable and ensures that we provide a happy, healthy experience for kids playing a sport they can enjoy for life. AYSO has developed a training program that helps parents who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. This ensures that our programs:

  • Abide by the AYSO philosophies
  • Offer a fulfilling experience in a positive and safe environment
  • Continue to grow, offering the AYSO opportunity to more children
It only takes a few hours to become qualified as an introductory-level referee.

Referees are as critical to soccer as players and coaches. In AYSO, the game can’t be played if there aren’t enough referees.

It’s most common for a volunteer to begin their AYSO referee career by refereeing their own child’s game. However, as they learn the rules, and gain experience, they often find it very rewarding to expand their knowledge through AYSO’s referee training and certification process.

AYSO’s referee training is regarded as some of the best in the United States and includes both in-person courses and online courses. Soccer knowledge is a plus, but is not required. The AYSO referee training will give you all you need to have a terrific experience on the field.
