Referee Abuse

It is the responsibility of every team in the to curb referee abuse. This is a responsibility of players, coaches, and spectators alike. The individual clubs are responsible for the actions of all persons associated with them. Referees have been instructed to aggressively report all instances of referee abuse regardless of the source.

Over the last couple of years warnings went out to several Individual Clubs and Divisions regarding their persistent levels of Referee Abuse. Those teams were warned that if the abuse did not stop, referees would no longer be assigned to the Home or Away matches of the trouble team(s). This policy will be enacted for any clubs unable to police themselves.
