ENSA Scholarship Applications are open - Deadline March 1

In the fall of 2003, ENSA felt the need to recognize the many outstanding young persons who are involved in soccer within our clubs and communities. The league decided to fund annual one-time $750.00 scholarships for at least two graduating high school seniors. The award is based on academic achievement, school involvement, and service to ENSA related activities. Those activities can include playing, coaching, or refereeing in the league.

In January 2008, the ENSA Board of Directors renamed the scholarship program The Linus W Fangman ENSA Scholarship to honor a man who served all of Nebraska soccer in general, and ENSA in particular, for many years as coach, competition coordinator, District Commissioner, mentor and friend. Bill Fangman passed away January 10, 2008.

Application and more information is located on the www.ensa.us website. Deadline is March 1.

Training for new referees

If you are a new referee, please consider training with an experienced referee mentor for two referee slots as a center referee on U9/10's and two slots as an assistant referee (AR) on U11/12's or U13/14's.  Look for "training referee" or "training AR" slots on the unassigned games.  After that you are encouraged to request games as referee or AR alone.  If you feel another training session is needed, please contact Mary Gene.

Username/Password

If you do not have a username or password, please "sign up to ref" and you will be notified of your username and password (they are not autogenerated once you submit your form).

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.
