Referees are assigned for all games (U8-U18)
For all U13/14 games, Parents are asked to act as linesperson – 1 parent from each team. The linesperson’s job is to raise the flag when the entire ball has crossed the touchline (sideline). They are not to determine the direction of play unless asked by the referee.
For U15 and up, paid Assistant Referees (AR) will be provided by the home club.
If the ref has not arrived 5 minutes before kick off, please call the club scheduler at 778-836-1641.
ONLY the referee can cancel a match due to weather or safety reasons.
You are expected to show up ready to play if the fields are “open” or listed as “user discretion”.
If you feel conditions are unsafe for play after arrival, please discuss this with the referee before kicking off and a decision can be made.
Coaches are NOT to decide on weather related cancellations the morning of a scheduled match unless the City of Port Coquitlam has closed your specific field on the City’s website.
Cancellations in advance MUST be discussed with your coordinator beforehand. Doing this incorrectly can result in forfeitures and fines from the league. Coaches should not be cancelling games on their own. Once a decision has been made, please confirm with the club scheduler via email@example.com.
