Mavericks Affiliated Referee Program

Mavericks Club Referee Policy

Meeting the ACCYSL Affiliated Referee Program requirement of each ACCYSL competitive team providing three affiliated referees who cover at least five games each is necessary to being a Mavericks team.  

  ACCYSL Affiliated Referee Program Requirements 

  • Competitive teams must provide three referees who cover at least five games in the fall season
    • It does not count if, say, two referees cover 15 or more games
    • Rained out games do NOT count
  • Referees must have a current Grade 8 license issued by USSF
    • No grade 9s or AYSO licenses
  • Only games scheduled on count toward meeting a team’s affiliated referee requirement
    • Games must be confirmed by ref sending in verification form for each game
  • Affiliated referees must have internet and e-mail access
    • If a referee doesn’t have internet access, we recommend getting an e-mail “buddy” who does and who can give the referee e-mails, and schedule the referee for games on


                                     Incentives for meeting 3x5 requirement

**Each affiliated referee who is affiliated with a team which meets the 3x5 requirement, gets $25 from the Mavericks club**  


                                     Consequences for not meeting 3x5 requirement

1.  Team pays $250 fine by December 15 of that year (after December 15, teams will be black listed for State Cup and NorCal play until fine is paid).                                                                   


2.  Team loses priority for practice fields and times for Spring and Fall of the following year.




Note: This policy was originally adopted by the Mavericks Board on October 7, 2008.
