Hello Camarillo AYSO Referees,
We are heading into the halfway point of our fall soccer season and I would like to cover a few important items and list some dates for upcoming referee classes.
Upcoming Referee Classes (Camarillo AYSO office):
·EXTRA Referee Training Class (Thursday 9/22 6:30 to 8:00): Mandatory for all referees wanting to officiate and EXTRA match. This class only needs to be attended once. Referees should have at least 10 games experience under their belt to attend this class and to officiate an EXTRA game.
·Intermediate Referee Class (Tues-Thurs 9/29-9/29 6:30 to 9:30): We have only a few spots left for this class. Regional referees should have 25 games under their belt to get the most out of this class. Contact Rich Frank immediately if you are interested in attending.
·Advanced Referee Class (10/2, 10/4 & 10/6): Intermediate referees interested in upgrading their badge please contact Cindy Elliott for more details.
Player Game Cards (Competitive): We need your help. Several game cards were turned in this last weekend that were not properly filled out by both the referees and coaches.
· Mark the square on the card with an “X” when a player rests for a quarter. Mark the square with an “G” when a player play goal keeper for a quarter. Make a note when a player has to come out for an injury.
· All cards should list the players jersey #, first and last name on the card. Hand the card back to the coach if it is incomplete and politely ask them to complete the information. The card should also have both coaches first and last names.
· Print both the half time/final scores on both cards along with the team #’s not the name of the team or the color.
· If team 202 beat team 210 4 to 2 the score on the 202 card should read 4 to 2. The score on the team 210 card should read 2 to 4.
· Print clearly all three referee names and team # you represent on both cards.
Goal Keeper Safety: It’s a good time to brush up on ways to protect the goal keeper. Click here for a link to our region’s website on Goal Keeper Safety. Remember the Goal Keeper is considered to have control of the ball when:
· The ball is clearly being held in one or both hands
· The ball is being pinned against the ground with any part of the hand or arm, in the limiting case with as little as one finger.
Remember to always side on what is safe, fun and fair for the players!!
Missing Game of the Week Volunteer Points: I have misplaced the sign-up sheet for the 10 or so referees that attended my game of the week class in week #2. Please contact me immediately If you watched the game with me and didn’t get your referee point for your team that week.
