 Referee References



Referees:
If you feel you've been the subject of abuse or assault while refereeing a game, complete instructions on the actions you can take are found at South Texas State Referees.

To report referee assault or abuse, download the Referee Report form (Acrobat pdf file).



REFEREES!
Have you ever had to think twice about making an "Offside Call"?? Check out this link for a great pictorial description of the "Offside Rule"!

How about "Handling" calls (also referred to as Hand Ball)? Please click here to review the proper ruling for "deliberate handling of the ball" during play (only a 2 page document).
