If you are interested in working the tournament, please go to and

“sign up to ref” (even if you have been working for me this season). 



Passes and Pregame Info - please read

Suggestions for pregame.  Before reading off and calling games, our referees need to:

  • Review all passes before checking players in.  Referee may want to get passes immediately from coach so they may be reviewed before check-in.  Save time.
  • Confirm ALL passes are for team scheduled to play the scheduled game.  Passes for other teams are not valid for this particular game.
  • Confirm all passes are for seasonal year 2015-2016.  Passes for seasonal year 2014-2015 are expired, thus invalid.
  • Confirm age group is correct for age group scheduled.  We need to know if there are older OR younger teams playing in an age bracket.
  • All passes must be laminated and have a picture.  If passes look altered, are not laminated or do not have a picture, make note on your game report.
  • Each pass needs to be individually laminated, no sheets with 10 passes laminated.  This eases need to separate passes in cases where referees need to keep a pass (red card, etc…)
  • It is recommended, not compulsory, that all passes be on a  ring or a clip in case a pass needs to be removed.  Also easier for referee to handle.

Updated League Rule Summary NOW POSTED

An updated League Rules Summary is now posted - please see topic on left side or see below.  The updated summary/matrix reflects the following changes:

ENSA U19 games are 45 minute halves

CYSL  U14 substitution policy 




Corner Flags

Corner flags should be at least 5 feet tall.  Shorter flags present a dangerous situation.  Do not allow the use of flags less than 5 feet tall and report the team as having no flags and please add it to the comments section of the game report.

NO SLIDE TACKLING for CYSL games - adopted Fall 2015

Please note the following now applies for all CYSL games:

Definition and General Policy

In all divisions of play, sliding tackles are not to be allowed.  A sliding tackle is to be defined as an intentional sliding play with an opposing player within playing distance.  Players are to be allowed to slide to play the ball in all other situations.

Procedure for Older Players (U10 and older)

For U10, U12, and U14, the following procedures are to be followed by the referee:


NSSA Weather Policy

NEBRASKA STATE SOCCER ASSOCIATION (ALL LEAGUES) WEATHER PLAN      JULY 19, 2014                                                                                

Weather Safety Plan/Lightning Safety                                                                      

Before games are played, league organizers are listening and monitoring the latest forecast to determine the likelihood of thunderstorms. If thunderstorms are forecasted, league organizers will consider canceling or postponing the activity. Once people start to arrive at an activity/event, the guidelines below should be followed.

Stopping Activities/Events:

 In general, a significant lightning threat extends outward from the base of a thunderstorm cloud about 6 to 10 miles. Therefore, people should be in a safe place when a thunderstorm is 6 to 10 miles away. League Representatives, Site Supervisors and/or Referees can stop the activity/event. Team Staff should get the attention of the Referee if they witness any of the criteria within the Safety Plan. Here are some criteria used to stop activities:

1. If you see lightning or;

2. If you hear thunder.




If you have registered as a new referee, please note that an username and password is not autogenerated.  I actually make the assignments and send you other information.
