(MW Referee Assignments) 

(Referee Contact Information)

 ------------------------ 

Club protocol

 

·         Contact Information.  Please provide current contact information. Name/Position/Email/Phone for 2 officers/contacts for your club. 

·         Assignment protocol.   Assignments are available by following the link above. They generally are scheduled 2-3 weeks out from the day of an event.  The home team must contact the assigned referee between Sunday and Tuesday the week of a fixture and confirm travel plans and logistics.  Confirmation means a two way conversation has been held via email, text, or phone.  A message or voice mail unanswered does not constitute confirmation.   Contact information for referees is at the above link.  If unable to reach the referee through Tuesday evening, contact the appointments chair on Wednesday to arrange contact. 

·         Kickoff times & schedule modifications.  Game times will be assumed to be between noon and 2pm on the Saturday originally scheduled by the competition committee.  If the kickoff is at an unusual time, it is decided to move to another day (like a Friday night), or the venue is changed, notify the Midwest appointments chair as soon as the schedule is out, preferably weeks in advance of the event. 

·         Home team responsibilities.  If at all possible, the host team will transport a referee flying in to/from the airport.  It is recommended that clubs and referee exchange cell phone numbers for game day issues (referees do get lost or get stuck in traffic).  Any game reports that will need a referee signature should be made available pregame. 

·         Coach/Team Evaluation of Referee.  As an education measure, coaches/team representatives are asked to provide match & game day feedback on their assigned referee.  This feedback should may include game performance, pre game communications, and post game contact.  Feedback is invaluable in shaping the referee landscape as far as individual development, and overall Midwest referee assignments.  Feedback can be extended to the chair, RDO, or appointments secretary.

·         Game cancellations.  The cancellation of any game MUST be reported by the home team to the assigned referee as soon as possible.  The cancellation must also be reported to the appointments secretary.  If the cancellation occurs within 96 hours of the event, any travel plans incurred will be charged to the canceling team.  If the cancellation occurs less that 24 hours of an event, normal game fees will apply.  

 

 

 

*Match Fees  Match fees are due prior to your first game.  The fee covers the referee for the first side game.  Any additional games/minutes must be worked out with the referee.    The fee per game is dictated by the league in which you play.  D1 men’s club demands a very high level referee so there is often more travel involved with those more select referees.  Travel expenses often make up the largest portion of match fees expenses.  Development fees go towards referee coaching, training events, referee clinics, and evaluations.  Please see the fee schedule below:
