The referee staff strongly recommends that each team have AT LEAST THREE referees to help ease the burden of your referee assignments.
Referee Point Requirements
You can check the point status at the referee table. There will be an updated print-out each Saturday.
U8: Each game, the home team (the team listed first on the schedule) will referee their child’s own game. The away team (the team listed second on the schedule) will provide assistant referees for the match. The referees will receive 2 points each for refereeing and 1 point each for assistant refereeing. The point requirement to participate in the post-season activities is 16 points.
U10: A neutral referee will be provided for each game. Each team playing is required to provide an assistant referee for each game. Each team is required to have 24 points by the end of the season in order to participate in the post-season activities.
U12 - U14: A neutral referee team will be provided for each game. In the event that no-one has signed up to officiate your match, please expect that a parent referee will be required to step up as an assistant referee. Coaches, please remind your parent referees to come prepared with their referee gear so that they are ready if needed. Each team will be required to have 24 points by the end of the season in order to advance to play-offs.
U16 - U19: A neutral referee team will be provided for each game. Please have your parent referees come to the field ready to referee if needed. Each team is required to earn 24 referee points by the end of the season in order to advance to play-offs.
Each team must also be in good standing with the region in order to participate in the jamboree or play-offs.
Referees MUST BE CERTIFIED, REGISTERED and IN UNIFORM in order to be eligible to earn referee points. If you don't have your uniform with you, please see us at the referee table PRIOR to refereeing so we can make arrangements.
- U8 games are worth 2 points for the referee position and 1 point each for the assistant referee position.
- U10 - U12 games are worth 2 points for both the referee and assistant referee positions.
- U14 - U19 games are worth 3 points for the referee position and 2 points for the assistant referee position.
Extra points can be earned by certified referees who help with set up and take down of the referee station and manning the referee table.
Extra points are also available to those who attend the mid-season continuing education course. This spring, we will be offering a course on how and when to apply advantage.
