Veteran or Seasoned Referees are NOT to interfere with the game.  Offer instructions at halftime and after the game is over.

Finish the Job!

Please note the following from the State Office!
All referees are reminded that they must sign player rosters as part of their pre-game procedures.  This means if there are 3 copies of the roster, they need to sign all 3 copies, or make sure their signature is legible on all copies.  Signing the roster is part of the center referee's responsibilities in all matches.  REMINDER to print legibily and return any game cards back to the coaches after the game.

GAMES REPORTS must be submitted within 48 hours!


How do I get game assignments?

Several weeks prior to each new season, Tom Schuchart (the YorkUSA League assignor) sends out avail surveys to all registered referees whose names appear on his most recent printout from EPSARC. You should carefully complete that form and return it to Tom immediately so that he can include the information in his game assignment decisions.

If you have not received the survey for the Spring season by mid FEBRUARY, or for the Fall  season the beginning of AUGUST, contact Tom at shewyusa@comcast.net or (717) 873-0638 to verify your address and certification status. Note that if you did not fulfill all of the USSF recertification requirements last year (ie: attend 5 hours of instruction, pass the written test and submit your USSF registration form to EPSARC  then your name will not appear on Tom's list. Neither Tom nor any other assignor can schedule you for games (including tournaments) if you have not properly registered with USSF for 2016.
