Spring Select 2024 Referee Guidelines

Referee Dispute Form This form is intended to identify situations in which a Referee does not apply the Law of The Game appropriately.  This for is not intended to complain about opinions if a foul was called or not called. This form will be used only to educate Referees regarding application of the Laws of The Game. 

Referee Abuse Policy

The purpose of this policy is to make clear that referee – where “referee” includes assistant referees – abuse of any kind is unacceptable and to define the standard sanctions for all reported referee abuse.

  • No coach or spectator shall question decisions by the referee. Mistakes are part of gaining experience and learning how to officiate matches.
  • Any and all forms of abuse – especially emotional, psychological, and verbal abuse – of referees is not tolerated. The referee subjected to abuse is authorized to dismiss the abuser immediately and without warning in accordance with this policy and Law 5 of the Laws of the Game.
  • The referee may, at their discretion, provide clarification or an explanation of a decision to a coach or both coaches. Coaches and spectators are not entitled to clarifications or an explanation for referee decisions.
  • The coach is responsible for controlling the behavior of all spectators associated with their team. A coach can enlist the help of the referee to address spectator misbehavior. Yet, enlisting the help of the referee does not release the coach from responsibility for controlling spectator behavior.
  • The following Regional Board Members are authorized to: 1) Intervene on behalf of the referee; and/or, 2) Take immediate action including, but not limited to: a) Dismiss a coach or spectator, or b) Suspend or terminate the match: Regional Commissioner (RC), Assistant Regional Commissioner (ARC), Regional Coach Administrator (RCA), Regional Referee Administrator (RRA), and/or Child-Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA).

Youth Referees are one of our most treasured resources.
They are also minors.
There are no cautions or warnings for abuse of youth referees; your first negative interaction with a youth referee will result in your dismissal from the match.
