All Refs should wear black and white stripes (or bright yellow shirt), black shorts or pants, whistle and a digital watch for all games you referee.
You will be paid $35/game providing you show up before the game starts, fully dressed and actively ref the game for safety, fairness and fun. Checks get sent a week after your game.
We have 35 referees certified this season and only 121 opportunities to referee. We will scale the number of maximum games by seniority so:
Seniors get 5 games maximum
Juniors get 4 games maximum
Sophomores get 3 games maximum
Freshman, post successful completion of shadow day with me will get to ref one paid game.
Attached is a complete list of Soph, Jr and Sr Referees with email and cell phone numbers so you can know who you are reffing with. PLEASE CHECK THIS SPREADSHEET FOR ACCURACY, especially the email addresses and email me at FHCoachJamie@gmail.com with any corrections. The Freshman have not been included on this list as they still need to be certified. Freshman will not be able to referee Sr Division games as they need to be two grades above the players they are umpiring.
When you go into the system, please select games on separate weeks, do not try to do three games in one day. You may choose Senior Division, Junior Division or Sticklettes Division games. Rules for the Sticklettes are attached and you need to show up early to review the rules with the head coaches.
If, after you register for a game, but then decide you can't make it and it is over a week away, just log back into the system and uncheck yourself from that game.
If it is LESS THAN A WEEK from your game and you can't make it please contact un-register yourself from the game as described above AND email me(email@example.com) and I will find a replacement for you. If you have one, please check with me first before we automatically assign your friend to the game.
To Self Assign Yourself to Referee a Game, follow these instructions:
Go to www.whyfh.net, Sign in to the Officials Area or the Master Schedule with your email address and password. If you have forgotten your password or have never signed in before, enter only your email address and the system will email the password to the email address, provided the address given matches the address of an assigned member of the Officials team.
Once signed in, go ahead and click out of the General Availability form or go to the top right of the page and click on options. You do not need to fill out the general availability section, it just mixes things up.
Go to the Master Schedule page (located on the left side of the homepage). Any open assignment that you qualify for will have a drop-down selection in the Officials ("Ofl") column.
Select the game you wish to assign yourself to and select "Assign" from the drop down list. If you wish to un-assign yourself from a previously assigned game, select "Not Assigned".
You can always view your schedule by signing in and clicking on options and selecting MY SCHEDULE.
Please make sure you CHECK your EMAIL as game time changes or cancelations will come directly to your email.
If you have any questions please email me.
Remember, keep it safe by blowing your whistle hard, early and often. Be in control of the game. Call bunching and spread the girls out.
23 minute running halves, 5 minute half time. Games run on the hour so the game needs to finish by the top of the hour. Remind the coaches that. If they get started late or take a long half time then that will shorten their second half. Start on time and watch the clock.
Thank you for reffing and your help in developing our youth in this great sport. I will be at many of the games and I may be coaching you from the sidelines or sometimes will run the middle of the field to encourage control of the game by the officials.
