Referees

If you would like to work as a referee, please contact Referee Director Brian Stretcher doctorlaw@juno.com.  Refing is a fun and challenging way to be a part of local soccer. Our refs work hard to ensure fair play and fun for all of our kids.    

The main goal of the referee is to make the game safe and fun for the children!

Being a referee is not as easy as it appears. They help as an additional coach on the field for small-sided games. Our referees are doing their best - it may not be what you observed, but the goal is to let the game be played so that children can have FUN!

Let the referee call the game! Helping the referee to call the trip or foul only confuses children. Disagreeing hurts your child's respect for the referee, and may hurt the view of the referee towards your child's team.

Criticism causes referees to quit rather than become better. Many referees quit due to being yelled at by parents.

As you cheer for the players, cheer for the referees too.

"Parents and coaches need to remember that if officials can hear profanity and other verbal abuse directed at them when a call goes against the team, the children on the field can also hear it." Abrams, 2002
