Info for Referees & Assistant Refs (Linesmen)
- CCSL Red Card Send Off Procedure: Referee officials To file a CCSL Coast or Bay Division match send off (red card) report click here. Fill out the web based form, hit submit and a pdf of the send off report will be emailed to you with additional instructions. Please do this within 24 HOURS of the match. You should contact the referee assignor in the League that the send off was given and report the incident. As a reference, here is a blank Send Off Report that you may print and carry to capture the information. If you are a player or coach that has received a send off (red card) in a CCSL Coast Spring League match, this link (http://www.d2sra.org/home/suspensions) will take you to the site for a listing of all send offs. The player pass will be sent to your League President or send off coordinator and will be returned to the team when the suspension has been served. Please allow 48 hours for the send off to be posted.
Game cards will be 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper printed by the home team manager and brought to the field.
You may self-assign or request a game using the Peninsula Soccer Referees Association. But your profile must have your USSF ID and USSF Year (what year your badge says) entered. All refs are required to renew their badges annually.

Finding Referee Assignments
Refs sign up and access the most recent listing of SSC games and ref opportunities at the Peninsula Soccer Referees Association site. Using a tab at the top you can register as a referee. If you are already associated with the Redwood League as a player, parent, coach, or manager, you must instead send an email to email@example.com and request that "referee role" be added to your profile.
Becoming a Referee or Assistant Referee (Linesmen)
SSC is always looking for referees. Referees must be at least Grade 8 certified by United States Soccer Federation; the club can help you gain certification, training programs are usually held at least twice a year. Upcoming classes can be found at http://www.d2sra.org/train/instruct_entry.lasso.
Licensed referees must be in uniform and wear badge (regardless of age). Referees (center and assistants) should report at the field no later than 20 minutes before the game, dress in the standard referee uniform, and bring the appropriate equipment (license badge, rule book, pen, flags, etc.).
To be considered as a referee, please send an email with your qualifications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Referee Evaluation using Redwood League website
Teams are encouraged to "rate the referee". The procedure is described in the club manager's Game Day Requirements.
