Respecting Referee Reminder

Welcome to Redoubt Soccer, 

We are proud to be a organization that not only values player development, but also referee development. On any given game day you will see referees from all ages out on the fields. We work with referees who have years of experience, and those who are just starting out. We have an amazing ref assigner, who works with and mentors our referees.

Across the nation we are starting to face a referee shortage. This applies to all sports. Many of the seasoned referees are starting to retire, and there are not enough referee's taking their place. A big reason for that is the treatment towards referees from athletes and parents. Click here to see an article about bad sportsmanship leading to referee shortage. We do not want to get to that point at Redoubt. 

We ask that all spectators and athletes work with us in creating an environment where both players and referees can learn, grow, and prosper. Please do not yell or bully our referees. If there are any issues,  we ask that you find one of the Redoubt Staff, or the Referee assigner who can go and work with them in whatever area they need instruction and help. We want to be able to continue to play the sport we love, and need our referee's in order to make that possible.
