Fall Season Recreational Team Referee Points

Effective 2013

What are Referee Points?

Just as players play games to earn Game Points and move their team up in the standings, Referees and Assistant Referees officiate games to earn Referee Points and help teams they are affiliated with move up in the standings. Awards are given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in Fall Recreational Regional Pool Competition. Teams that earn Referee Points have a much better chance of placing higher in the final standings than teams that do not.

Affiliation

Referees and Assistant Referees may assign referee points to a team where they have a family relationship with a player on that team.

When are Referee Points Used?

Referee Points are earned only during Fall Recreational Regional Pool Competition; they are not used during the Fall Playoffs or any other season.

Types of Referee Points

  • Referee GAME Points are earned by Refereeing or Assistant Refereeing games during the fall season.
  • Referee BONUS Points are earned by qualifying as a new referee or by obtaining a referee badge upgrade (see details below).

Values Earned

  • Referee GAME Points: 1/2 point is earned for each game you Referee or Assistant Referee when signing up on the schedule prior to game day. 1/4 point is earned if volunteering to referee a game without advance scheduling however the referee must be in uniform, confirmed by the referee on the match report.
  • Referee BONUS Points: 1 bonus point is earned for those new referees who complete the Basic Referee Course AND referee (CR or AR) four (4) games in the fall season, or by passing the test for a badge upgrade. This activity must be completed between June and November of the current year.

  • Teams may accumulate a maximum of 1 Referee GAME Points per week (Sunday to Saturday).
  • Fall Recreational Team: Maximum of 8 Referee GAME Points and/or maximum of 2 Referee BONUS Points (total maximum of 10 points) may be earned per team, per season.

How to Ensure Points Get to a Team

Submit a 'valid' Match Report:

  • Use a match report form. Printable version provided here: Match Report.
  • Clearly print your First Initial and Last Name on the Referee's match report.
  • Clearly print under or next to your name the Team Designation for the team you are assigning your point.
  • Remind the Referee to put the match report in the Match Report Box or email a photo of the match report to the RRA (rra@tustinasyo.org).
  • Sample Match Report 1 // Sample Match Report 2

NO 'valid' match report, NO points!

Team Designation

It is extremely important that you understand what a Team Designation is and how to properly write it on a match report. A Team Designation is Gender, Age Level, and Team Number combined into one alphanumeric identification (i.e.: GU10-15 or BU14-8). The team number can easily be found by:

  • Going to www.tustinayso.org. Click on Fall Schedules > Teams > Gender/Age (i.e.: B-10). The team number will be to the immediate right of the coach's name.
  • Asking the coach.
  • Looking at the listing of Team Designations that is posted next to the Match Report Boxes on Saturdays at our most used fields.
  • Looking at the first tab of the Google Docs Referee Points report found on the Referee Schedule page.

SAMPLE MATCH REPORT ENTRY for John Smith:
"J. Smith BU12-4" or "J. Smith BU12-Jones"

Key Info

  • Referees are encouraged to sign up on the schedule in advance to earn Points. Signing up in advance makes it easier for the referee administrative team to ensure the maximum number of games will have referee coverage.
  • Points are earned for covering games on Tustin home fields only. Recreational or EXTRA games (typically designated with Q96 or R96) may be used to earn points.
  • Referee GAME Points are accumulated by a team over the game week and cannot be carried over to a later game week or back to a previous game week.
  • You may earn Referee GAME Points for more than one team (including EXTRA teams), but you must be affiliated with each team and referee more games. Points will not be split.
  • Referee Points are usually updated on the Referee Points Report (Google Doc link found on this page: Referee Schedule) by the Tuesday night following Saturday's games. Any questions as to the number of referee points earned each week must be brought to the attention of the referee administrative team BEFORE the following Saturday.
  • It is the responsibility of the individual referees to ensure that a valid match report is properly submitted promptly. Late match reports will be considered, but not automatically accepted. The referee administrative team will not chase down match reports.

Issue Resolution

Any conflict regarding referee points must be put in writing and submitted to the RRA.

Any conflict regarding the interpretation of these Referee Points Guidelines shall be resolved by the Regional Commissioner and such determination shall be binding on the parties. If the Regional Commissioner determines that any provision in these Referee Points Guidelines is unenforceable or otherwise invalid, such determination shall not affect the remainder of these Referee Points Guidelines. In lieu of declaring any provision in these Referee Points Guidelines unenforceable or invalid, the Regional Commissioner shall have the authority to modify any such provision to the extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.
