Refereeing for some can be a calling but since it is also a paying position there are expectations and conditions. We want our referees to succeed so we take all feedback very seriously and will work with referees experiencing problems through a variety of methods such as additional mentoring or by recommending additional training.

Misconduct reports must be submitted the office by 4:00 PM the next business day following your game to ensure an investigative process is promptly initiated. Please forward any ASA reports to programs@emsanorth.ca or fax them to 780-406-0825.

Expectations of EMSA North Referees and Assistant Referees:

  • It is expected that all referees treat players, coaches, parents and each other with respect. Maintaining professionalism both on and off the field and applying the rules of the game in a fair, consistent manner will minimize the possibility of situations escalating out of hand. Respect is an earned expectation.

  • Except in the cases of emergency it is expected that any cancellation of games will be made at least 48 hours notice prior to the games.
