|Cal South Board of Directors Extends Risk Management Policy to Include Out-of-State Referees Officiating League Play|
In a continued effort to provide a safe and secure environment for soccer throughout all of Cal South, the Cal South Board of Directors, upon feedback from member leagues, has decided to extend the Referee Risk Management Policy to include out-of-state referees officiating league play. The end result of this action is that referees who acquire their USSF certification in another state association, but who also officiate league play week-in and week-out within the boundaries of
Cal South, will have to go through Cal South's required Risk Management process of "Live Scan" fingerprinting.
The initial policy implemented as of June 1, 2010 did not take into account the rise of out-of-state referees officiating multiple weekends of league play. Cal South and their State Referee Committee (SRC) will look to work within their network of referee associations, gaming circuits and certified assignors to adopt compliance of this new policy rollout.
*This policy extension does not impact Cal South-sanctioned tournaments which may bring in out-of-state referees for a lone weekend. Those referees need only to comply with the Risk Management requirements of their home state association.
