Assignment Conflicts

All officials should be aware of the SRC policy regarding conflicting assignments:

  1. Each referee is expected to keep all assignments that are accepted.  However, there are certain occasions when a referee has previously accepted an assignment and receives a higher priority assignment which takes precedence as described in the Referee Administrative Handbook.  The referee must contact the assignor of the lower-priority match to be released from that assignment.  In accordance this this policy, when assigned at least 48 hours in advance, State Cup Competitions have precedence over any other match within the state.
  2. For in-state assignments, received at least 72 hours before the match, a referee is encouraged to contact his/her original assignor in order to be released if assigned to a higher-level match.  Assignors, in order to further referee development are highly encouraged to release that referee without prejudice.

A phone call to your original assignor is more professional versus a text or email correspondence.

Top 10 Referees

Returning for a second year, in order to develop the next generation of referees, the State Referee Committee has established the Grade 8 Power Rankings, which recognizes those Grade 8 Referees under the age of 25 in the state that have distinguished themselves by their level of assignment and fitness. This is the final ranking list for the 2013-2014 Season! Standings will be reset in the fall.

We congratulate those referees that have qualified for Higher Grades and will no longer be listed.
