- The referee teams are responsible for their fields. The center referee is the “senior-in-charge“ of the assigned field and pitch. The assistant referees are responsible and accountable to the center referee. The team must work closely together in maintaining control of the game and making the “BEST POSSIBLE CALLS” they can. A professional attitude is required at all times. Remember you are representatives of BEACH FC. If you have a conflict with anyone on your referee team, take it up away from the field, parents and players.
- The referees are to get the game ball from the site table (trailer) for each game and return it to there when the game is finished.
- If problems arise the site managers are available to assist the referees as needed.
- Referees must report any red and yellow cards given on the “Field Report Form” in the referee book. All red cards and or suspensions MUST be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of the incident as well as reported to the site manager/board member at your location.
- As the weather begins to shift please be prepared for either hot & humid or cold & windy weather. Also, make sure you have with you sufficient DRINKS, snacks or a lunch to cover the time you are at the fields.
- Games begin as early as 8:00 am and could go until 2:00 pm. When you request a game on mysoccerleague.com, be sure to leave yourself enough time for travel.
- For scheduling purposes the following should be noted. We schedule games according to the first requested. If you are a new referee, please do not request center’s for U10 and U12 games. We would like for you to have experience with the younger age groups first.
- IF, FOR ANY REASON, YOU CANNOT REFEREE THE GAME(S) YOU ARE SCHEDULED TO DO YOU MUST NOTIFY THE SCHEDULER NO LATER THAN THE THURSDAY BEFORE THE GAMES TO ALLOW TIME TO FIND REPLACEMENTS. If you do NOT show up for your game without notifying the referee scheduler you will hear from the Director on your availability for games for the coming weeks.
- If games are cancelled or postponed due to weather, referees will be emailed as soon as the decision is made, usually between 7 and 7:30 am. If you are unsure by the time you need to leave home for your games, check the Beach FC website at www.beachfc.com.
