Referee development is something LSSA continues to invest in by having mentors observe and/or referee alongside less experienced referees. To aid in monitoring referee performance and developing quality referees, LSSA is providing an online feedback form. Please use the form constructively. The form is meant to be used by coaches to provide feedback on a specific game.
Coaches for U7 and up are required to submit a game card at the start of each game listing the players in number order. The game card must include the division, date, game time, and coaches names. To make completing game cards in a legibile manner easier, coaches are provided game card labels they can print and affix to the blank game cards they are also provided.
Prior to each season the following forms need to be completed by coaches.
