Referee Code of Conduct

  • Always remember that the game is for the players. Player safety and fair play comes first.

  • Study and learn the Laws of the Game and understand the "spirit" of the Laws. Help fellow referees do the same.

  • Encourage and enforce the AYSO philosophies of "Everyone Plays", "Positive Coaching" and "Good Sportsmanship".

  • Respect other referees' decisions, and do not publicly criticize another official. EVER!

  • Wear the proper uniform and keep it in good condition.

  • Maintain good physical condition so you can keep up with the action.

  • Stay calm when confronted with emotional reactions from players, coaches, parents, and spectators.

  • Support good sportsmanship with a kind word to players, coaches and parents of both teams when deserved.

  • Always be fair and impartial, avoiding conflicts of interest. Decisions based on personal bias are dishonest and unacceptable.
