Due to the decrease in 2022 Match Official registrations province wide and with our objective for the 2022 Outdoor season to avoid cancelling games, we have introduced the “ 1+1 Assigning System”. This recommendation has received Board of Directors approval.
This is a system where there are 2 officials assigned to a game, one in the role of Referee and one in the role of 4 th Official. There would be no Assistant Referees assigned.
Due to the fact that no Assistant Referees may be assigned, multiple age groups and levels of competition could recruit a volunteer to assist the Referee team.
Attached below is simplified explanation of the role of a volunteer stepping into the role of an Assistant Referee.
