4.     Once established, you will be assigned an eAYSO ID #. PLEASE WRITE THIS DOWN! You will need this number to access your account in the future and                 complete the training listed below.

5.     *** If you have been a registered Volunteer in the past, please search for your previous account prior to entering a new one. This helps avoid duplicate accounts where information may later be overlooked.

How to Register for AND Complete Referee Training  (4 STEPS)

Step 1- (SAFE HAVEN Training):

1.     Please access this website:

2.     ENTER your eAYSO ID# (from above) and your LAST NAME

3.     At the bottom, ClICK on “SAFE HAVEN”
