Instructions
Remember: REFEREE= Official in the middle with the whistle, Assistant REFEREE= The
Official with the Flag running the touchline ( Sideline)

C. We recommend you pick a game before or after your Child's game to Referee, but that's just
a suggestion for convenience . Feel Free to start with Referee or Assistant Referee
Assignments. You will need a blend of both to fulfill your teams point(s) Requirement.

D. Please DO NOT Referee your own child's game at 10U or Above.
If you are there to watch, and the Referee needs an Assistant Referee, If you think you can be
neutral and unbiased, go ahead and take the Assignment.
Please email Myself: [email protected] and Brian Meehan: [email protected] and we will make sure you get *credit for that game . However, you must be in full Referee Uniform to get that Credit.
‚óŹ Remember, Only games 10U and above are count towards your teams Season-long
Referee point tally

E. You will need to be In Matchtrak and signed up for at least ONE GAME to receive your uniform and Referee Supplies ( Regional 10U and up ONLY) 

As a hint, Experienced Referees usually wear their shorts and socks all day Saturday and have our gear bags with us always.....Never know when you can knock out some more points for your team!

3. Attend our Annual Referee Uniform/ Mentor night, this is where you will receive your
Uniform and Equipment you will need to get started Refereeing
 

A. We try to stock unisex from Adult AXS all the way to XXXL. Youth sizes are more limited but
we should be able to accomodate all. If you have any special requests for uniforms , please

4. Stick around for Referee mentor night after you get your Uniform and get some
Referee Experience at one of the Scrimmages being held that night !


A. Even if you can only stay for one quarter, This 12-15 minutes of your time will go a long way

speaking to our Mentors also will be a great benefit.
