Games & Referees

The WSC does expect the best behavior from everyone toward all referees and especially towards our youth referees. There is NO TOLERANCE FOR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO OR ABOUT REFEREES at any time before, during, or after games.   In the case of youth referees, while many are also experienced players, they are still youngsters without the life experience to handle negative remarks.  

The refs do a great job in what are sometimes difficult situations and while they sometimes make mistakes (they are only human), the referee's ruling on the field is final. Please refrain from shouting at referees to tell them something was a "bad call".  If you think a referee has made an egregiously wrong decision, you can report it later on if you wish, but don't argue the calls or create conflict with referees. 

Please give our referees your full support and help model good behavior for others to follow. And if you have an opportunity to say "thanks" to them after a game - that would go a long way!

Thank you in advance for your help.
