Suspensions are AUTOMATIC and Team Officials shall be responsible to heading the suspension regardless of whether or not they have been officially informed by the League Director or Discipline Director.

We know that each year some referees do not show up for one reason or another. We cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate those officials who stay extra or step in and help out when they see a fellow official on their own! This not only helps the other official but it also helps the most important people, the kids. If someone does show up please do not send them away.
