Welcome to Nuevo Region 797


Without qualified referees, the games cannot go on. AYSO requires a qualified Referee to be assigned to a game at least 24 hours before start time or the game can be cancelled by the Area.

As a result, Region 797 has established a point policy to encourage each team to provide the required referees for each game so that the kids can play each weekend and the region can function properly.

For our 10U and Up Program:

Simply, all 10U and above teams earn points for End of Season play by providing referee volunteers throughout the Fall Soccer Season. Teams that will be impacted by points are those that play in the Regional and Area Tournaments at the end of the season. (***Each year there are always at least one or two teams that don’t qualify and it is always a great disappointment to the kids)

 Each team is obligated to earn a total of 15 points throughout the season. These points are earned by having certified referee volunteers signed up (and officiate) games AND by adding the referees name and team name to the back of the game card.

 Referees (the center) earns 2 points per game played for 10U and up games played in our region and the Assistant Referee (the line referee) will earn 1 point per game (anyone doing a 14U and up game as an AR earns 2 points per game officiated) per game played for 10U and up games played in our region.

THIS YEAR WE ARE INTRODUCING A NEW POINT SYSTEM FOR OUR 8U DIVISION.  The team with the most points will get money towards a Pizza party.  (for the 8U division: Being a Referee for your own games does not count towards ref points; These points are an extra incentive to help referee the older games)

Each team is encouraged to have three referees and there are far more games that need coverage than the point minimum would achieve.

 As our season progresses, the Referee Staff will be informing each team’s coaching staff where they are at as far as points earned. For the full points policy and rules, please see the following link:

 If you have any questions regarding points please contact the Regional Referee Administrator at [email protected] and we will provide you any guidance you may need.

 Thank you for all you do and please go take a game or three….
