Game Day Protocols

 Video/Cell Phone Footage

  • Video evidence is not allowed for in game decision-making in any youth leagues at this time. Even if one of your spectators got a perfect video of a foul or offside situation, the referee may not use it to make decisions, nor may it be used to overturn the outcome of a match.
  • Where video footage can potentially be useful is in evaluating/mentoring referees or in helping referees assess performance, or if serious decisions (i.e. red card ejections) were made correctly.

If you have video footage to share that will help me in mentoring/assessing/coaching other referees, please send to my email, and I will use accordingly.

In the event that video footage of an incident resulting in a send off (red card) would help the referee in making an accurate disciplinary report, such footage may be offered to the referee. This is most likely to  occur in a situation where the offense is for violent conduct (i.e. striking or attempting to strike an opponent). Please note that referees are not obligated to
view such footage, but may choose to do so. If you find helpful footage after a game in which red cards were issued, and you think the footage would help before the referee sends disciplinary reports to the league (usually within 24 hours after the end of the match), please send that footage to me promptly, and we will work with the referee.

*Please note that once reports are sent to the league it is highly unlikely that any league decisions (i.e. suspensions) will be overturned.
