If you would like to ref for Salvo Soccer Club, you must complete the steps below (select the links for more details on each step). Registration for new referees is open July-April.
To register for league games and/or for the Salvo SC tournaments, please select the league or tournament under the "League/Tournament Preferences" on the "My Preferences" in GameOfficials.
All referees must abide by Salvo Soccer Club’s Expectations and Requirements. Salvo SC reserves the right not to assign you for games and/or to remove you from games that you have already been assigned to for failure to abide by these Expectations and Requirements. These apply to ALL Salvo SC referees, irrespective of age or experience level.
If you fail to show up to a game that you have been assigned without contacting the Salvo Soccer Club’s Referee Assignor and/or without due cause, you may be removed from future assignments. If you find a sub for your game, you must notify Salvo Soccer Club's Referee Assignor before the game.
All refs will wear proper refereeing attire: official referee (Yellow primary, recommend blue as backup) shirt, black footwear and black shorts (no stripes and proper length, short shorts or basketball shorts are not appropriate) and no jewelry. You also need to bring a whistle, flags, cards, a reliable stopwatch, etc. Salvo Soccer Club reserves the right to remove refs from future assignments of any referee who consistently fails to wear the proper attire or bring the necessary equipment.
All officials will arrive at the field a minimum of 30 minutes before kick-off, ready to check the teams in and start the game on time. If you are running late, please notify the other referees assigned to the game. If you do not have their contact info, call or text Mike Guillou, 612-709-0137 for South/Central or Colleen Hase, 612-655-3556 for East (if texting, please include your name and what game you will be late for). If you arrive late and a replacement has been called in, you will not be paid for that game. Salvo Soccer Club reserves the right to remove refs from future assignments who consistently fail to arrive in a timely manner.
Professionalism includes your attitude and demeanor on the field, the manner in which you interact with players, coaches and spectators, and also such matters as only taking the monies due to you and informing the Referee Assigner or other club official of any known conflict of interest [e.g., refereeing a close friend or family member].
ALL refs, including ARs, need to enter information in GameOfficials for league games. After your game, go to “After Games” and click on the "Game Number". This will bring you to a new screen. You will need to enter the "Final Score" and then answer the "Game Summary Information" questions. These are three yes/no questions and you just click the box. If any of the questions are yes, please type a comment in the "Summary Notes To Admin Users". You can also type a comment in this section to report any concerns that we should be aware of, such as holes in the nets; marginal field conditions; issues with coaches, fans, or players; or other comments. Failure to do this WILL delay your pay. If someone else has already completed it, please verify that the information is correct an then click save.
