AYSO Region 88 Glendale

Youth Referee Program (PRO)

Region 88 has a program just for referees under the age of 18. It is called the Player Referee Organization or PRO, which stands for Player Referee Organization. It is the standard name given to AYSO Referee programs geared towards kids 18 years old and younger. Anyone is welcome to become a youth referee – they do not have to be a soccer player to join PRO. However, 95% of AYSO youth referees are also soccer players and therefore the program is named Player Referee Organization.

National guidelines state that kids 12 years old and older can become certified Referees (U-5 thru U-8 games) or Regional Referees (U-5 thru U-10 games). Youths under 12 are welcome too, but usually need to join the program as Assistant Referees.

Our Programs

Playground (U4) (Ages 3) This special program features Activity Leaders, certified through the AYSO National Coaching Program, who understand the needs and capabilities of 3-year-olds and are sensitive to the needs and the bonding experience of the parents. 

Schoolyard 5U (Ages 4) Children get to play soccer in an age-specific program, and you, the parents, get to participate with them.

Core Programs (Ages 5-18) AYSO’s oldest and best known program where a majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make lifetime memories.

VIP (Very Important Players) [Special Needs]: The AYSO Very Important Players (VIP) Program provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams.
