Youth Outdoor Referee Information

2018 Fall Season Information

Outdoor Referee Assignor: Shane Kennard (click to email)

Session starts: August 18, 2018.


My plan is to publish games on Tuesdays. That means you must get your availability done by Tuesday. Please keep your availability updated. I know it can be tough...I have to do it myself for my refereeing. You have 3 days to accept games and those games will autodecline after 3 days and I'll assign them to someone else.
