Dear Coaches and Referees:
My name is Jim Kreuziger, the Tournament Referee Coordinator. I am being assisted this year by Anthony Naticchioni.
Let me begin by thanking all of you for all you do for AYSO! And, secondly, welcome to the Section 11 Area Q Orange County Spring Classic.
Here are some notes about referee administration for the tournament:
The SchedulesEtc scheduling system is setup for self-assign. And, self-assign means each referee can sign up for the games which fit in their schedule and they are qualified to do. Each referee uses their unique email address to create a login name and password. If you: a) don't have an email, b) don't understand how to create your login and password, or, c) you are having problems logging in, then please email me for assistance.
We will work with a referee administrator to assign referees to a game. However, each referee still needs to login and accept the assignment and this requires a unique email address. Consequently, all referees need to create a login and password.
All game requests (including requests to be removed from a game) should include: Game Number, Game Date, Game Time and Field. If this is a request for a referee team to work together and be assigned to a specific game, then include the referee(s) first and last name(s) and the position(s) (such as "Referee" or "AR").
Referees need to check-in at the referee tent at least 30 minutes prior to the start time of the match.
Tournament Rules and Match Conduct Procedures are posted on the tournament website and on the Message Board after you log in (as a referee).
