Is this your first season as a referee? AR positions only. No centers. No ODSL games. No U8s.
All positions on ODSL games require at least one season of experience at the same age on non-ODSL games.
Do not self-assign three centers in a row unless all the AR positions are covered.
Avoid taking the second game of the day if the first game of the day is uncovered.
No one may work for more than 5 hours without a break. Rare exceptions for a few adults.
Do not take U16/U19 games until you have comfortably officiated U14 games.
Do not take a center until you have comfortably officiated that age as an AR.
Contact me if you take a U8 game for the first time. The U8s are special to me, which is one reason they pay so well, but they are also different, and I want to chat with you first about them.
Send me an email if you find no games available, or you want to work together as a family.
Check our handbook at www.brycrefs.org for additional information.
