Referee Shortage
Friday, September 13, 2013
   

This season some games may face a shortage of referees. If and when this occurs, York USA is asking that you understand the problem, bear with the referees that are working our games, and cooperate with them when asked for support.

York USA games are officiated by referees from the York Area Soccer Referee’s Association (YASRA). This season YASRA has 47 less referees than last season. Some of these 47 have simply quit referring, some (current high school students who play soccer) has elected to take the season off, and others have graduated high school and are now away at college. Compounding the problem, the York Area Interscholastic Athletic Association (YAIAA) has scheduled a large number of Saturday game keeping many of those referees who are still in high school from working our Saturday games.

YASRA and its member referees are doing everything they can to ensure referees are assigned to our games. As part of this effort, the YASRA Referee Assignor must follow established procedures for referee assignments. These procedures can be summarized as:

  1. Attempt to assign one referee (Center Referee) to every game.
  2. After all games are covered and referees are still available, assign Assistant Referees (AR) beginning at the oldest age groups first.
  3. Center Referees, when only one referees has been assigned to a game, are expected to ask the coaches for a volunteer from each team’s spectators to serve as ARs.
  4. The duty of the volunteer ARs is limited to indicating when the ball has completely left the field of play. All other duties, including which team is awarded the throw-in, are the sole responsibility of the Center Referee.

Again, we ask for your patience and understanding this season. We also ask that all eligible and interested persons (14 and older) consider becoming a referee. Classes will be forming after the season.

Laws of the Game Revisions and Clarifications!
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
   

York USA recently adopted modified, age appropriate Laws of the Game to govern play in our league while providing reasonable consistency with surrounding leagues (for the purpose of tournament play) and to foster development in accordance to US Youth Soccer guidelines and recommendations. These laws may be down loaded from our Forms page.

Notes:

  • The size of the penalty area (14 yards) was inadvertently left out of the recently adopted York USA league U10 8v8 Laws. This document has now been revised and re-posted.
  • The York USA Game Standards remain our core set of rules governing play within the league. The new U6 through U10 modified Laws of the Game supercede the Game Standards where there is a difference in the provided guidance.
  • Play in U12 and older travel-level age groups reamain governed by our legacy York USA Game Standards.
  • Play in U12 and older a recreational-level age groups remain governed by our York USA Game Standards except where superceded by our Recreational Soccer Rules.
