Welcome or welcome back to Vienna Youth Soccer. We are looking forward to another great season and referees are part of what makes VYS such a well run organization.
PLEASE READ THE REFEREE GUIDELINES PRIOR TO ONLINE SIGNUP.
Round One of Fall Referee Signup will begin on September 1 and end September 3 at 6 pm.
TO REQUEST GAMES
You may request 8 games for Round One. DO NOT MAKE REQUESTS PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 1.
Assignments are NOT made on a first come, first serve basis so it doesn’t matter when in the time between September 1 – September 3 (by 6 pm) you make your requests.
Before requesting games you must do the following:
1) Have provided a Referee Profile to the VYS referee assignor
2) Mailed your completed W-9 form to VYS
3) Read the Referee Guidelines on the VYS website.
On September 3, the referee assignor will begin making assignments.
If you receive an email saying your request has been declined, you may select another game. You may select a new game each time you are declined. You should never have more than 8 games requested at one time. Therefore, for games that your request is accepted you may not request another game until the second round of sign up is opened.
Assignments will be made based on experience and fairness. If there are siblings, parents or friends that would like to work games together, please email in advance and I will do my best to respect those wishes when assigning.
As it is in everyone’s best interest to have referees work two consecutive games, priority will be given to referees that request two games in a row. You are limited to two games in a row unless you request to work more games and receive approval.
Please don’t leave holes in the schedule. Example, if there are six consecutive U10G games, you should either request games 1 & 2 or games 3 & 4 or games 5 & 6. If you request games 2 & 3, for example, you will likely not get the assignment.
Please remember that many, many referees will request the same games, so please don't be discouraged if not chosen.
Referees that do not respect the 8 request limit, make requests before September 1 or request games they are not qualified to referee (i.e., new referees requesting travel games or to center games above U10) will be declined even if no one else has requested the game during Round One.
More information will be sent out via mysoccerleague.com as September 1 becomes closer.
