Referee No Show Rescheduling Policy and Procedure

  • If your center referee or linespersons do not show up for your game, please call your Referee Assignor. If they are able to answer the call he/she will try to send a replacement referee to your game.
  • If you are unable to reach your Referee Assignor, or he/she is unable to send you a referee, you may have someone who is present officiate your game, provided that BOTH coaches are in agreement on the person. If you start the game with a substitute referee, it would mean that both coaches have agreed and there can be no argument after the game. The game will stand as is. Please make a note on the game sheet and have both coaches sign their name beside the note to indicate they have agreed on the substitute referee.
  • If you wish for the game to be rescheduled, both teams must leave the field of play. YOU MUST NOT PLAY ANY TYPE OF EXHIBITION OR SCRIMMAGE. IF ANY TYPE OF GAME IS PLAYED THE GAME SHALL BE CONSIDERED VALID AND THE SCORE WILL COUNT IN THE STANDINGS.
