Weather Alerts

Just because it looks stormy where you work, the game is "on" until you receive notice that it is not. Call the school if its really questionable.

Whose game is it?

As officials, we are here to serve the safety and enjoyment of the players, as said so many times before...it's their game, help them to enjoy it -- safely!

Goal and field checks

Always inspect the goals, the playing surface, the supports and the netting to ensure safety is paramount. AD's know the goals must be secured - help to remind them if they are not.

Uniforms

All players must be in the same complete uniform (except the keeper) be sure to understand the updated uniform requirements before you hit the field.
