A Guide for 2022

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.
