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.
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.
ENSA and CYSL no longer supply game cards to the coaches. A new feature on HEYREF is the ability to print a game card for each of your assigned games. Log in and go to your schedule (far right side) and print a game card before each game. AR’s should print one for their use also.
Center referees and ARs are required to file a game report within 24 hours of the game. No report – no pay.
The Spring 2015 season will start March 26. If you have changes to your mailing address, cell phone or emails - please send those to me as soon as possible. New referees should fill out the "sign up to ref" information and then receive other information before the season begins.
New offside information starting Spring 2015. Learn more in the recertificaiton classes.
If you do not have a username or password, please "sign up to ref" and you will be notified of your username and password.
