2019 Referee Meeting
What if I can't make a game I've been schedule for:
If you cannot make a game you are scheduled for please let the me know asap. I always have the soccer phone with me but I may be working and may not respond right away. Please send me an email with the exact details or you can text the soccer line like any cell phone (905.985.7553)
When do I need to arrive for a Game:
Please try to be at the fields no later than 20 minutes before game time. This will give you enough time to check in, pickup corner flags, check nets & field, meet with coaches, check players for proper attire and jewelry.
Referee Bag Check List:
(Please do this before you leave for the fields). You should always arrive at the fields already dressed. Black shirt with OSA crest, shorts and socks (three strips) and NO hat.
You should also have:
Please check in at the club house for field assignment changes or updates, and so we know you have arrived for your game.
Do you have what it takes to be a Referee?
Youth have to be 12 years old as of March 31, 2019 for the SSA Youth Ref program and 14 years old for the District course. We are always looking for older youth and adults. If you are interested or for more information please email the Head Referee - Gillian D'Alleva (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Club Administrator (Amanda O'Connor) at email@example.com
OSA Referee forms can be found on the table just under the bulletin board in the clubhouse. The forms include:
For online versions of these forms go to the OSA web site, click on Referee and then look for the form in the left menu. If you fill in a form, a copy needs to go to the SSA Head Referee. Originals go to the DRSA office in Oshawa. Also let the Scugog Soccer office know you have filled a report. There are short deadlines to be followed so don't delay.

THIS MUST BE FOLLOWED!
Scugog Soccer has its own lightning detector. This device is about the size of a pager and is worn by one of the Directors at the fields whenever there is a threat of thunderstorms. It helps us determine if a storm is approaching and its approximate distance. This can detect lightning long before it can be heard. It's only used as a guideline but helps us to decide when to clear the fields.
If you hear thunder, please be prepare to suspend your game. Notify your coaches that you may be stopping the game so there is less confusion if you do. If anyone sees lightning stop the game immediately and get everyone off the fields. This is OSA policy. Send everyone for cover (i.e. to their cars or to the picnic shelter).
30% of lightning strikes are under blue skies before a storm arrives. 50% are after a storm passes and again under blue skies. (hence the term "out of the blue"). Lightning can strike from farther than you can hear thunder so be aware of the weather forecast before your game starts.
