Hudson Valley Soccer Referee Association

 

Assignments

A requirement of being a soccer official is to accept or decline your assignments as soon as possible after you receive them. Our assignors work tirelessly, and at times thanklessly, to assign the appropriately experienced official to a particular match. It is imperative that you do your job by responding accordingly.

Please make sure that your availability calendar is updated in Game Officials. The tutorial on how to do that is located in the “HVSRA Member Area” of this website. Most of the leagues that this region serves are assigned through Game Officials. If there are unforeseen events that preclude you from turning a game back, it is your responsibility to contact the lead assignor of that match. It is best to communicate through a phone call. Do not rely on email or text messaging services.

Failure to not take action on an assignment, may eliminate your from your future assignments, so please take your responsibility seriously.

Youth matches are generally assigned by the Thursday prior to scheduled game (and most games are on weekends).  The lead assignor is Cathy Romano (Roma7779@aol.com).

Adult matches are also assigned through Game Officials, and the assignor is Gallo Trujillo (gallotru45@aol.com)

Game Reports

Similarly to accepting assignments, if you are officiating any match in the leagues outlined below, you are required to complete and submit a game report. The link to the game report, and instructions on how to complete them are listed below. Each league has different requirements on how and what to complete, but all require a game report.

Failure to not submit a report in a timely fashion, may eliminate you from your future assignments. Please complete your report in a timely fashion.

Reports from games involving red cards, injuries, assault, or other unusual situations (such as improper player passes or forfeits) should be sent to the league officials and the lead assignor should be copied as well.

Issues involving assault on an official must be communicated to the President via a phone call (646.500.3065)  IMMEDIATELY.
