17th Annual AYSO 422 High Valley Shootout

Open Invitational Tournament

 

Referee Plan

 

The following are guidelines that the AYSO AYSO 422 High Valley Shootout Open Invitational Tournament will apply for referees in our 2010 tournament:

Commitment Requirements

A.    Each team participating in the 2010 AYSO 422 High Valley Shootout Open Invitational Tournament must provide at least 1 crew consisting of 3 qualified referees: 1 center and 2 linesmen.

B.    The AYSO 422 High Valley Shootout Referee Information Form must be completed, approved by the Region or Org. Referee Administrator (AYSO Area Referee Administrator in the case of AYSO referees for U-16/U-19 games), and returned with the Team Application.

C.    Each referee team will be asked to officiate a minimum of 3 matches during the tournament. These may be game assignments or standby assignments, which will be consider equal in terms of earning the referee deposit refund.  Championship teams will provide refs for the additional championship games.

D.    If all assignments are completed, the entire referee deposit of $150 will be refunded within 14 days of the completion of the tournament. If only partial assignments are completed, then a partial refund will be provided equal to the proportion of assignments completed.

E.    The deposit refund check will be returned to the Region/Organization Treasurer info shown on the Team Application form.

F.    Remember: the quality of officiating is largely dependent upon the experience and abilities of the referees you provide.

G.    If a team submits less than a full 3-person referee crew, these referees will be assigned to games, however only a proportion of the referee deposit equal to the number of assignments these referees complete will be refunded to the team.

H.    Should a team’s referees fail to appear for their assigned game and no replacement referees can be found, then the entire team’s referee deposit may be forfeited regardless of how many other assignments the referee crew may have completed.

Qualification Requirements

A.    Each AYSO referee must have a current season volunteer form on file with the NSTC, provide their AYSO ID# and be Safe Haven certified.

B.  Each referee must be versed in the Laws of the Game, including current law changes and capable of applying the laws according to the spirit of the game.

C.  Each referee may only represent one team in the tournament.

D.  Players in the tournament will not be allowed to officiate within their own divisions.

E.  Coaches in this tournament are strongly discouraged from officiating so that scheduling of referees with the best experience and without conflicts can be accomplished. If an exception is warranted due to lack of other referee volunteers, this must be approved in advance by the AYSO 422 High Valley Shootout Referee Administrator.

F.   Youth referees will only be allowed if they are not officiating their own division in the tournament. Care must be taken when considering whether to allow a youth referee to officiate in the heated environment of a competitive tournament. These referees must have their Youth Volunteer Application form with them at all times and present it to any Tournament official upon request.

Uniform Requirement

A.    All referees must be in full Uniform as defined by AYSO and USSF, including appropriate Badge.

B.    The Gold uniform will be considered the primary color of referee uniform for this tournament. The referee crew will be expected to change to an alternate color in case of conflict with either of the teams’ uniforms.

C.    Referees not in uniform will not be permitted to referee games, and their team’s referee deposit may be subject to forfeiture.

D.    For Open Invitational and International tournaments, if a particular game involves two non-AYSO teams, it is acceptable for the referees to wear their USSF badges.

C.  Every effort will be made to assign referees to neutral games at their level of competency or below. In rare cases, referee crews may be asked to split up in order to meet these goals.
