Referees must complete the following before week 3 (September 7, 2019) in order to sign up for games on our online scheduler (CGI).

2.  Sterling Volunteer Background Check:

AYSO now requires a more significant background check through a third-party vendor Sterling Volunteer. You will receive an e-mail from the American Youth Soccer Organization after you register with a secure link for you to complete a background check. Please know the e-mail will state there is a $25 fee, but Camarillo AYSO is paying that fee. 

First responders (State-local-federal Police, Fire, EMT, Medical personnel, and prison staff) and active military personnel, please fill out as much information as possible when completing your volunteer registration in regard to your occupation and employer as well as in your background check information because of the State & Federal laws protecting the privacy of your protected class from third party background/personal information check. 

New Referees must complete an in-person ID check so we can verify who you are. This check can be done at AYSO Office hours or any of the AYSO classes at headquarters.
