Match Reporting Procedures

We run payroll each week after games are completed and after ALL referees have turned in their match reports. The following is required for all match reports:

  1. Fill in Game Officials Score
  2. Fill in "Submit Match report" page in Game Officials
    • The submitted match report must contain the same information as the printed game sheet. Official Score, who scored, injuries and cards.
    • Please email as an attachment, NOT EMBEDDED in the body
    • Scans are best, but if submitting a picture, it must be clear and readable, or it will be rejected
    • The manager's signature must be on the team's game sheet.
  3. Must email both copies of physical game sheet to info@torsosoccer.org
  4. Must file an incident report in GO for all cards and all injuries
    • Red cards should have a more detailed description
    • All information needs to match game sheet and match report
    • Set incident reports to PROOF
  5. Information on field conditions, or issues of that nature, need to be filed under "Incident Reports" in GO. There is a designation for Field Conditions.
  6. All information must be submitted before payment will be released for the game. The rule is: Until everyone turns in all the information, no one gets paid.
  7. The exception to this is in-advance Forfeits. No information needs to be submitted from the ref. On-field forfeits need to have an incident report filed in Game Officials, detailing the reason for the forfeiture at time of game.
  8. For more information or clarification, email info@torsosoccer.org.
 
Referee Payment Policy

Inclement Weather/Field Conditions

  1. If games are not played due to inclement weather or unplayable field conditions and if the games are canceled before 11:15am on game day, then the referees will not be paid for those games.
    • In the case of alternate game times (first assignment is not 1pm), the cutoff shall be 1 hour 45 minutes before kickoff.
  2. If the fields are closed or if a game is called off after 11:15am, the following guidelines will apply:
    • Referees will be paid for any 1pm games to which they accepted assignments.
    • Referees will be paid for any game that has kicked off.
    • Referees will not be paid for any post-1pm game that is canceled before the scheduled kickoff time, unless it is a referee's first assignment of the day and the game was canceled within two hours before scheduled kickoff.
    • If a referee calls a game for weather/lightning after the scheduled kickoff time, whether or not that game has kicked off, the referee will be paid for that game.

Forfeits/Cancellations

If a referee has accepted an assignment (center or AR) for a game and that game is forfeited by one of the teams or is canceled by the league for any reason at least 7 days before game day, referees will not be paid for that game. The seven day cutoff is at midnight, seven days before the game day. For example, if notification of a forfeit or cancellation is sent to the assignors before midnight on Sunday for the next Sunday's game, the referees for that game will not be paid.
