2021 AYSO Return to Play Guidelines for Officials

return to play guidelines for officials 20201.pdf

Notes:
1. Teams will be on opposite sides of the field from one another. This way they can spread out along their own sidelines safely with their own team.
2. Only 2 spectators are allowed per player. Please work with the coaches if you see more. This is a hard rule and there are NO exceptions!
3. All officials need to have a mask on their person at all times in case close communication is needed with a player, coach and/or spectator. 
4. ALL spectators and coaches must abide by all of the CDC guidelines for safety throughout the entire time they are on the fields. This includes, but is not limited to:
a. Masks must be worn properly at all times.
b. Must remain at least 6 feet from one another
c. No sharing of water bottles or other head/facial equipment

All cards are then deposited in the AYSO mailbox that is a fixed to the Lexington/Arnold fence next to the lock ups.  Please fill out a game report for all misconduct, including any and all issues and concerns, on the day of the game. Please send the report to the Regional Referee Administrator (RRA). Inter-Region Area E games and Section 11 EXTRA Misconduct/Incidents are also reported to the Area E Referee Administrator. Game cards are kept for a period of 4 weeks in case of any discrepancies.
