AYSO Region 34
Guidelines -- Referee Volunteer Points 
Fall Season 2018 

CLICK HERE TO GO DIRECTLY TO POINT TOTALS
Games cannot be played without a qualified referee team. To encourage coaches, players and their families to
become trained and volunteer as referees, the region will award the following points for each game refereed to any
team with which that referee is affiliated:

Division Points Awarded
U7, U8 and U10 2
U12 3
U14, U16 and U19 4
 
What does it mean to be Affiliated:
To be Affiliated to a team, one of the following must apply:
  1. The referee is a parent, relative1 or sibling of a player or coach on the team
  2. The referee is a coach or assistant coach for the team
  3. A player/family has recruited a new volunteer/referee that has had no prior volunteer association to Region 34. This volunteer/referee will remain affiliated to this player/family for the duration of time that the player/family continues to play in Region 34.   These Volunteers must be, or must become, certified AYSO referees before they are authorized to referee in Region 34 and begin to earn Referee Volunteer Points.
1a relative is defined as Aunt, Uncle, Cousin or Grandparent 
Qualification for Beach Cup Tournament
At the end of the Fall Season, the region will hold a Beach Cup Tournament to determine which teams will advance
to Area League Tournament competition in January. To qualify for the Beach Cup Tournament, a team must
have earned the following levels of Referee Volunteer Points in addition to fulfilling their assigned snack bar
volunteer duty:

Division Points to Qualify
U10 26
U12 33
U14 40

U7/8 and U16/19 teams do not play in Beach Cup. U16/19 teams will play in a season-end Area Tournament.

Teams that do not fulfill these requirements will not participate in Beach Cup, regardless of their win/loss record in
regular season play.

Points are earned primarily by refereeing games. Other ways to earn points for Beach Cup qualification include:
  • Recruiting New Referees (up to 3 points per new referee) – Teams will be awarded one bonus point for each new referee that attends Regional Referee training and referees one game. One additional bonus point can be earned for refereeing a second and third game, to a maximum of three points per new referee. These points are earned in addition to normal referee match points
  • Volunteer as Snack Bar Auxiliary (15 points) - This involves working 20 hours (5 four-hour shifts). Snack bar auxiliary is a snack bar management position that requires supervising incoming snack bar volunteers. It does not replace snack bar volunteer duty.
  • There may be additional volunteer opportunities set forth by the region as needs arise. Coaches of teams having difficulty qualifying for Beach Cup should contact their Division Captain for more information.

Referee Rewards
To encourage referees to continue to volunteer after their team qualifies for Beach Cup, the region will reward teams
that go above and beyond Beach Cup requirements with a financial award that can be used for a year-end team
party, coaches gifts, or other pre-approved team-related expenditures. These awards are earned solely by referee
volunteer points and do not include points for snack bar auxiliary or points earned for other volunteer
activities.

U5-U8 U10 U12 U14
