HEYREF is now open through April 15

All games are now posted on HEYREF. 

For new referees who want mentoring, please be patient.  I have to actually assign an experienced mentor to a game before I can open it up for a training game.

Good luck this season.  I look forward to working with everyone.


Just a quick reminder that the spring season games will start on 3/22/18. If you were certified in 2017 and your referee patch says 2017 -  YOU WILL NEED TO RECERTIFY - if you have not already. I can only assign you to games if you recertify for 2018. The recertification is ALL ONLINE this year - no classroom time. Here is the link to get more information:


If you have recertified but not received your 2018 patch, it will be mailed to you, but I do not know the timeframe for the mailing. As long as you have recertified, you can wear your 2017 patch. I get a list of all certified refs for 2018 and until I know that you have recertified, I will not be able to assign any games. If you have any questions about recertification, please contact:

Thanks and I look forward to working with you again this season.

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).

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.
