Referee Game Day Checklist

This checklist primarily addresses center referee duties. However, we use a team approach, so share responsibilities and share the fun!

WHEN YOU HAVE FREE TIME Read the Region Rules

BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE

  • Plan to arrive 20-30 minutes early
  • Allow time for parking and coffee
  • Bring uniform, watch, whistle, coin, red & yellow cards, pen or pencil

BEFORE THE GAME

  • Stop at the shed
  • Check day’s schedule, next week’s schedule, announcements
  • Inspect Field
  • Check nets, sidelines, corner flags, scan pitch
  • Meet with Referee Team
  • Discuss positioning, signaling, and questions
  • Scorecards from coaches
  • Game ball
  • Referee Flags
  • Equipment check/quick talk for each team
  • Look for shin guards (required), jewelry (none), casts (none), dangerous cleats
  • Discuss expectations and encourage fair play
  • Meet captains for coin toss & introductions (winning call chooses direction, other kicks-off)

START OF THE GAME

  • Count players on field
  • AR’s and Goalkeepers ready?
  • Check watch
  • U8: 20 minute halves
  • U10: 25 minute halves
  • U12: 30 minute halves
  • U14: 35 minute halves
  • Teams positioned for kick-off
  • 10 yards, all players on own half
  • Whistle and point in the direction of kickoff to start the half
  • Ball played forward (even the slightest tap will do)

HALF-TIME

  • 5 minutes
  • Referee Team meets to review and check-in
  • Notify teams at 4 minutes that start will be in 1 minute

END OF GAME

  • Referee Team meets at center then moves to sideline and review game
  • Sign scorecards. Note situations requiring follow-up
  • Overly rough play, ref no-show, field maintenance required, sideline problems.
  • Assure that teams respectfully congratulate each other
  • Turn scorecards in at shed (white box on side of shed)
