Referee Payment Guidelines
A) If a game is scheduled to be played, and for whatever reason is not going to be played as scheduled,
as long as the center referee is notified 48 hrs in advance, referee will NOT be reimbursed by the league.
It will be the duty of the Local Assignor,(club assignor, to notify the ARs for that game not being played)
B) If the match is cancelled, (Act of God, rain, weather, field closings), and the referees are notified at least
TWO (2) hours before they leave for the match from home or another venue, the refs do not get
paid for the match.
C) If the referees arrive for the match and it is not played for any reason prior to the start of the match (weather, unplayable condition of field, teams don’t show, etc) the refs receive one-half pay.
D) If the referees arrive for the match and a team does not show, a team does not have enough players OR passes are not present, the match is not played and the referees are paid in full. The center referee will
submit a report to the league and the team who failed to follow through is responsible for referee payment (either for a future match or compensate the other club if the league determines it is a forfeit.)
E) If the referees arrive for the match and it starts but has to be abandoned before the first half is concluded (weather, field condition, participant action) and the match can not be finished following a
reasonable delay, the referees receive full pay

Got Soccer Assignor and Referee Guidelines:
Primary Assignor and FYSA Background Check
All assignor and Referee accounts used for USA games will be those accounts created by FYSA.
All assignor and referee accounts that are created by assignors or referees will be rejected.
All referees will list FYSA as their primary assignor.
Before USA will grant assignor access, USA will verify that the assignor is FSR certified and has an approved RM status.
Got Soccer has many options and functions since it is used by multiple state associations, leagues and tournaments. Since the referee and assignor portions are used by events that cross state associations, they can not “customize” the program to reflect the parameters of one State. Since other National and State associations use Got Soccer for tournament scheduling, USA members will have to follow the above guidelines that cannot be programmed into a “USA only program”.
Game Day Procedures
USA has updated the referee procedures, due to recent changes in software. The new procedures are posted here
USA requires a 3 part game report for ALL games, and each team is required to provide a Got Soccer game card that contains the rosters to the referee at game time.
The main reporting change is in the way that referees will submit game reports, they no longer will go directly to the assignor, reports and rosters will now go directly to USA. For referees that are assigned through Got Soccer, they will continue to submit online game reports through their Got Soccer referee account. However, they will scan and email the game cards directly to USA at [email protected]
or faxed to 1-866-279-4329. If scan or fax capabilities are not available, contact [email protected]
Please also remember that no one except the applicable USA District Referee Assignor can change any 11’s-19’s Center referee game assignment. If there is a question regarding a game assignment, click here
