CHANGES PLANNED FOR THE 2022 SEASON
The national referee deficit and staffing shortage has caused us to reevaluate the services we are using for our programs. After reviewing concerns teams had during the fall 2021 season with referees, the anticipated reduction in the number of referees available for the spring 2022 season, and the standard practices of recreational leagues in our area. District staff decided that using parent referees in the PreK-1st Grade NYS divisions will be the most beneficial to our players and teams. In addition to encouraging parent involvement with the games, this change also enables us to schedule younger referees for games with the older grade levels where they can train with seasoned officials. We expect that this will lead to a higher referee retention rate as new referees will have the opportunity to gain confidence and experience on the field. Additionally, the younger teams and players benefit from parental involvement by having a coach from each team on the field to provide direction and support our younger players.

HOW WILL THIS WORK?
Each team will provide a volunteer referee for each game. Often times this can be accomplished by having one of the coaches from each team on the field to share in the officiating responsibilities. Coaches will be encouraged to use the game as an additional training tool to further their player development. Teams may work together to modify the rules of each game to best fit the needs of their teams.

FAQ’s:

  1. I have no idea how to ref a game; where do I even start?
    Coaches and Parents will be invited to attend a free “Intro to Refereeing” clinic prior to the start of the season.
  1. Do I need to purchase additional equipment now since we are responsible for supplying referees?
    No; electronic whistles will be provided in the equipment bags of all PreK-1st grade teams.
  1. Does a coach have to be the one to officiate?
    No, anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to officiate the game. Those 12 years and older are welcome to be involved as linesmen.

We look forward to working with our Pre-K-1st grade teams this spring to make this change.
