Referees
Saturday, March 21, 2015
   

York USA is happy to welcome approximately 70 new referees starting with the Spring 2015 soccer season. As these newly trained and certified referees, along with the returning experienced referees, officiate our games this season. The York USA Board of Directors, officers of our member clubs, and York Area Soccer Referee's Association (YASRA) ask for your positive support and cooperation with the referees at all times. They have a challenging and sometimes difficult task and do so to the best of their abilities. We especially ask for your understanding and patience with those new referees as they enter this noble profession.

Remember that verbal abuse or negative criticism of referees is as unacceptable as verbal abuse or negative criticism of players and will not be tolerated.

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  • Play in U12 and older a recreational-level age groups remain governed by our York USA Game Standards except where superceded by our Recreational Soccer Rules.
