AYSO Iowa Cup

Want to improve your referee skills and receive helpful pointers from some of the area’s most experienced AYSO referee mentors? Want to engage in some friendly competition with other referees? Sign up for the 2017 Iowa Cup!

The Iowa Cup is a new, annual, referee “competition” within an AYSO Invitational tournament that promotes refereeing excellence through feedback from experienced referee evaluators. Teams of referees are evaluated on their performance during tournament matches.

In 2017, The Cup will be presented in conjunction with the Dubuque Soccerfest Tournament on July 1-2 in Dubuque Iowa. Participation is open to currently registered AYSO referee volunteers from Section 6.

Youth referee’s are some of our finest officials with a unique perspective on the game – youth referee’s are encouraged to show off your skills

Competition will take place in a development division this year. The Development Division is open to volunteers with a certification level of Intermediate or Regional Referee.  Matches will be drawn from the U12 and U14 age divisions.

Each referee team will be evaluated on three matches within their division. Each individual on the three person team will have the opportunity to be the referee once and assistant referee twice. Evaluations will be conducted by AYSO Advanced and National level referees with feedback sessions after each match.  Each referee participating in the Iowa Cup will receive a special token of participation.  The highest scoring referee team will receive an additional token of achievement. 

*Registration is first come, first serve with a team cap based on the number of mentors in attendance and complete referee coverage of the tournament.
