Policies and Procedures
Ohio Concussion Awareness Law
Ohio has passed a law requiring all Coaches, Referees and league officials to undergo Concussion Awareness training every three years. This law applies to all youth sports including recreational, travel, indoor and premier soccer. The law, ORC 3707.52, became effective April 26, 2013.
To take the FREE course, go to NFHS "Concussion in Sports" course for officials.
Directions to request a game in Game Officials
The game officials system permits you to let assigners know that you are interested in officiating certain games that are in the system. The complete instructions are in a Word file when you log into game officials in the assigning group 1155. You can also download a copy by clicking here or by going to the forms and publication page.
Assignors are registered through Ohio North and not through any district, league or local referee association. Assignors cannot discriminate against a registered referee because of race, religion, national origin, sex or membership in a local referee association. Age should only be a factor when the league mandates a minimum age difference between players and referees. Registered assignors will be given a list of all referees registered with Ohio North.
Unauthorized disclosure of a registered referees list
State Referee Administrators may furnish lists of referees only to state associations, registered assignors, affiliated leagues or tournaments for conducting their soccer related activities. These lists may not be made available to anyone else (including soccer related businesses) for a fee or free of charge. (2010 Administrative Handbook page 34)
