WYSL payments

We have just been informed that the payment for the first two weeks of refereeing will be done on Sept 30th.  We are told this is due to the implementation of the new assigning system.  Please do not blame the WSRO since we had recommended this new system not be implemented in such haste but the WYSL went ahead with it any way.

We are also being told that payment will be bi-weekly after that date.

CHANGES TO THE LAWS OF THE GAME  –  See FAQs

NO HEADING FOR U12 OR YOUNGER

STARTING INMEDIATELY, ALL WYSL U8 to U12 Games Fall Season “NO HEADING ALLOWED” per the US SOCCER Mandates.  (Because under the new USSF mandate, “calendar year”, over 20% of the U12 teams have 10 years old players).

RED CARDS

If you issue a RED card but do not display it, make sure you enter it into your report, especially if you did not display it for safety reasons.

REGISTRATION AND RECERTIFICATION

The September 27th recertification and registration meeting has been postponed until the online test for USSF Grade 9, 8 and 7 referees are posted by ENY.  Recertification will NOT be held on September 27.

 

Concussion Course and Risk Management Protocol

Concussion Course – The United States Soccer Federation has mandated that all certified referees are required to take the Concussion Course. It is a simple online module only taking a few minutes. Those over 18 can take this module in conjunction with their Risk Management for 2016.  To see Course instructions click here

Risk Management protocol is also required for those over 18.
It is now tied to the concussion training, so you may do both–see RM instructions at http://wsroref.com/referee-information/risk-management/
