Lewisburg AYSO is in need of volunteer referees at our site, Riverwoods AYSO Field, about a mile from the University. We need referees primarily for 8U-14U. Our “part 1” season starts the weekend (Saturday’s only) after Labor Day and typically ends on the last weekend in October (again, Saturday’s only). Typically the season is Sept/October in Fall and April-May in Spring. Training is provided and each week there are plenty of slots to fill. If you could help ref or assist games each week with our current crew that would be fantastic. For each game you ref you will accumulate a $10 B&N/Amazon gift card which we keep track of and distribute at the end of the season. We sign up to ref games through SignUpGenius.com
We also require you are registered by PA and FBI for child clearance protection reasons. We will pay for your FBI clearance upon receipt. The PA clearances are free. Information can be found at https://www.lewisburgayso.org/become-a-volunteer.html. To sign up contact John at email@example.com
