Spring Season 2017

Games are open for the spring season.  

New referees should note that on Saturday, March 25 there are only CYSL games.  If you notice, the CYSL U12's do not have AR's so those open training slots are for adults or older youth referees who have some experience.

More training games will open as more mentors request games.  There are lots of new referees and I will try to spread the training games among all.  Please remember that "training referee" and "training AR" open slots means I already have an experienced referee assigned that can train new refs.


Recertification for 2017

For information on referee recertification requirements for 2017 (all recertification is ONLINE for 2017):

Until you have recertified you will not be able to request games.

ELECTRONIC PASSES - updated info

  • ELECTRONIC PASSES Electronic passes are being accepted for ENSA and CYSL as of now
  • Attached is a detailed explanation from NSSA on how the passes and rosters are designed – please take the time to review this info
  • If a coach doesn’t have electronic passes or can’t access them at game time OR doesn’t have paper passes – you will have to write down all the players and coaches – first and last names please – and file a NO PASS report 
  • If there are no electronic (or can’t access) or paper passes – then allow one adult on the team bench side to coach – but be sure to get the first and last name for the NO PASS report
  • PLEASE NOTE: Electronic passes now have the birthdate.  Please check birthdate in relation to division age as some teams have similar names.

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.


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).

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.
