Lesson Plans


In March 2008, new lesson plans for referee courses were created but the old lesson plans were left on AYSOhelp.org to ease the transition for referee instructors who were in the process of planning the delivery of courses. The old lesson plans have now been removed. Please use the current lesson plans on this page for any future referee course instruction. If you have questions or concerns related to either the old or new lesson plans, please send them to NRC.instruction@ayso.org.

Note to Referee Instructor and Advanced Referee Instructor candidates: the requirements for these certifications have not changed. Referee Instructor candidates must have successful evaluations, preferably with two different qualified Referee Instructor Evaluators, as an instructor in a 30-minute presentation from the Basic Referee Course and as an instructor in a 30-minute presentation from the Intermediate Referee Course. Advanced Referee Instructor candidates must have a successful evaluation by a qualified Referee Instructor Evaluator as an instructor in a 60-minute presentation from the Advanced Referee Course.

Note to Mentor/Advisor candidates: In the Referee Advisor Handbook, the requirements for becoming a Referee Advisor include completing referee training module 19. This should be interpreted as a requirement to complete "The AYSO National Referee Program" section of the Intermediate Referee Course lesson plan.
