How do I get a Referee website Username and Password?

The Referee Coordinator will email or call you with your login information and website game signup instructions before the season starts. If you did not recieve a login, send an email to the head referee with your name.

If you are not a registered PYSL player or staff, you need to send all of your basic contact information including name, address, phone, email, license level, etc. and fill out an adult registration form. You can pick up the forms at the Registrar's house, located at 1712 Pine Avenue, Petaluma CA 94954, in the top drawer of the file cabinet on the porch.

How do I remove myself from a game?

You can remove yourself from any game you have signed up to refree on the Remove page before the cutoff date. The cutoff date is currently set at a week from the game date (this might change). If the game does not show up in your game list, then see What if you need to cancel a game at the last minute?

What if I don’t have a game card?

The home team coach is supposed to supply the game card. You should always carry extra game cards to cover your games. You should print out your game information from the Assignments page. This will have all of the necessary information about the game including the match number, field, team numbers, coaches names and phone numbers, referee names and phone numbers, etc... In addition to this information, take down the player names and numbers and transfer the information to a real game card later.

When do I get my checks?

The referee paymaster will check the website and figure out who gets paid what. The paymaster will write the checks and leave them at the referee scheduler’s house. You can pick up checks when you drop off game cards or pick up game cards.

Why should I rate my games?

You should try and rate every game that you work. This information is used to evaluate the coaches, parents, and players by the league to make PYSL a better program. Good evaluations will make the league aware of potential problems before they become big problems. Your evaluations of the coaches, parents, and players are kept private. See the Referee Help page for more information.
