Referee Assignment Procedures

As a reminder, Tarey Houston is MYS' soccer referee assignor. Tarey has over 14 years' experience assigning referees to NCSL, CCL, Futsal, EDP, ODSL, SFL, Super Y, and Recreational games.

As a club, MYS will allocate to Tarey matches for the following MYS leagues/tournaments: CCL, EDP, Recreation and SFL games as well as any MYS Tournaments. Tarey has a Google Referee Availability Form you can complete today for any MYS tournaments that you are available to work. Tarey can be reached at [email protected]

Each March and mid-August, Tarey will begin making pre-assignments for that season's MYS games.

Don't forget to contact Tarey to request her www.gameofficials.net group code so you can be added to her online referee group. Once you join Tarey's group, you will begin receiving emails with a list of open MYS games, and this is the system where you will be assigned your MYS games. Tarey can be reached at [email protected]

Want to Become a Certified Soccer Referee?

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a certified soccer referee (or want to re-certify), contact Tarey (at [email protected]). Before each season begins, MYS will host one or more new Referee Grassroots certification class(es) usually held at the McLean Community Center (address is: 1234 Ingleside Avenue, McLean, VA). Your referee certification is a nationally recognized certification, and you may work in any U.S. state. You must recertify before January 1 of each year to continue working as a certified referee.

MYS REBATE BONUS for Brand, New Referees:

Tarey will also manage MYS' new referee registration fee rebate program. If you attend a referee class, become certified, and work 20 or more MYS Recreation (REC) games (with a maximum of five being MYS tournament games) by the one year anniversary of you first becoming a certified referee, you will be eligible for a one-time payment reimbursement of $80.

Want to be Assigned MYS Games?

Tarey utilizes www.gameofficials.net as her online referee assigning tool. This is where you will find the list of available MYS games and how you will be assigned games. You will need to join Tarey's www.gameofficials.net group to have access to this information. If you are already certified, please contact Tarey (at [email protected]) to request the instructions on how join Tarey's online referee group. Closer to the start of each season, you can opt to be pre-assigned games for the entire season, or you can pick up games from the weekly available game lists that Tarey will post and send by email. If you need instructions on how to use the www.gameofficials.net system, Tarey can provide them.

Generally, below is the procedure that Tarey uses to make referee assignments:

1) At the beginning of the season, Tarey will request your availability via email through the www.gameofficials.net system. This is your opportunity to let Tarey know specifically when and where you are available to be assigned games. Note: You can opt to be pre-assigned games for the entire season (or just the specific dates you indicate on the form). You can also decide to pick up available games from her emailed list of open games week by week.

2) Based upon the collective emails that Tarey receives from you, she will make pre-assignments before the season begins.

3) If there are holes in the schedule AFTER she sends out those assignments, she will follow up with additional emails to get those holes filled. At this point, games are usually assigned in the order that Tarey receives requests by email [as long as the referee requesting the game(s) is qualified and has the level of experience]. To increase your chances of being assigned the games you want, when replying to Tarey's emails to request games, always send more than one game set choices in one email.
