Verona Area Soccer Club - How Referees are Assigned and How to Pay Them
Referees self-assign to games on a website
called "GameOfficials.com.” After
successfully completing the referee course, each referee is given
his own account and he
can see all
games available to referee and request games. The Referee
keeps track of games that are not covered and sends emails out each week to
try to get all games covered. If a game is not covered, the team
contact will be emailed so the team can decide whether to play
the game as a scrimmage or
reschedule. Usually all classic
games are rescheduled and most recreational games are played as
Coaches and managers will be contacted only if there is no referee available for the game that week (this is a change in Fall 2012. If you are concerned about your game having a referee, you can contact your Referee Assignor. There are two different emails for assignors for our games. One is for classic teams and one is for recreational teams (both Alliance* In-House and MAYSA scheduled rec). Please contact only the assignor for your group. If you contact both, then the other one just forwards the email to the correct one and it creates confusion. Do not contact the state referee assignor. She has nothing to do with assigning our games at the local level.
Here is who to contact if you have questions about getting a referee for your game:
Classic Teams: Linda Huttenhoff email@example.com
Recreational Teams (both MAYSA Scheduled Rec and Alliance In-House): Jay Mattison firstname.lastname@example.org
- Referees are not used in U7 and U8 games.
- Pay the referees with cash (no checks) at the beginning of the game. Referee should be given a team roster for rec and in-house teams and roster and player cards for classic games.
To find out how much to pay the ref go to http://www.maysa.org/html/referees/fees.php. The referee fees are NOT part of the VASC and MAYSA fees. These fees need to be collected each fall and spring to pay the referees.
Referee fee for In-House (U9 and U10 ) teams is $15. Each team pays 1/2 of the fee each game.
Classic teams also pay half the fees at each game.
For MAYSA Rec (U9-U14), however, the Home team pays the entire fee.
If you have any questions about this process, please email the administrator at email@example.com.
