Referee and Game Field Assigning
Ref Director: Bob Johnson,
Paying referees: Please pay the referees before the start of each games as they may need to leave for another game immediately following yours. In order for you to be reimbursed, you must fill out the Weston Soccer Club Reimbursement form and have each of the referees sign it when you pay them. You can find the form under the "Documents" side tab. (This is for IRS compliance.) The fee schedule is as follows:
U-8 to U-10 $60 for center and $40 for AR's
U11 to U-19 $70 for center and $45 for AR's
Conduct Towards Referees. It is always difficult to recruit and retain referees, and in the past some referees have quit because of abuse they have received from spectators or coaches. The Weston Soccer Club has a zero tolerance policy regarding such behavior, and the referees are instructed to end the game and leave the field it they feel threatened in any way. If a situation develops that makes you or the referees feel uncomfortable, please call us immediately. Most of our referees are kids just a couple of years older than the players, and all are trying their best. Please, do everything you can to calm any overzealous coach or spectator from either team.
The other aspect of our job is to improve the skills of our referees and help them develop. We will do our best to observe the referees in action as much as we can, but we would greatly appreciate whatever feedback you can provide. Whenever you have something to say, positive or negative, about the performance of any of our referees, please send me an e-mail with your thoughts.
