Responding to the Referee Problem

In response to the growing issue of training and retaining quality referees, the USA Executive Board has taken a hard look at the reason for the referee shortage.  Referees have cited concern for personal safety; inappropriate player, parent and spectator conduct and lack of respect as some of reasons for the referee shortage.  The following measures will be implemented for the upcoming season:

  1. Require member clubs to host referee training courses (new or refresher) once every three years,  to increase the referee pool.
  2. USA will offer several online MANDATORY training sessions, to educate referees on USA Bylaws, Rules and Regulations and appropriate game day procedures.   
  3. Require coaches to be responsible for parent and spectator behavior. (FYSA rule)
  4. Continue the Referee Mentoring program; Senior Referees will provide hands on observation and training to younger referees.
  5. Continue the use of the Referee Assessment Report; tool to provide feedback and follow up.
  6. Continue to utilize central Referee Assignors, to ensure fair and objective officiating at all USA league games.
