Referees Code of Conduct
Reprinted from American Youth Soccer Organization

(click here for AYSO Main Page)

  • Always remember that the game is for the players. Player safety and fair play come 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 philosophies of “Everyone Plays,” “Positive Coaching” and “Good Sportsmanship.”
  • Respect other referees’ decisions and do not publicly criticize another official.
  • 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 and parents.
  • Honor accepted game assignments. In an emergency, find a replacement.
  • 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.

The referee’s decision is final and not subject to debate.  This is the most basic rule of any sport.  Players, coaches and spectators must accept this principle.  Faced with verbal harassment, intimidation, or physical threats, a referee has the right to abandon a game in these circumstances.  We cannot afford to drive referees away from the game. Any game official is under enough pressure without that added unnecessarily by players, coaches and spectators.
