Notes from the Field- From Dave Howard: USSF Assignor
Weather is a major consideration: You need to plan ahead and have the right gear to work in the cold and wet games. Look up your local clubs web site to see if the fields are open or closed.
Food & Water: You need to plan ahead, bring food/snacks and water to every game!
Referee gear is important: During cool temps you can wear sweatpants, a hat and gloves. Your USSF shirt ALWAYS needs to be your last layer showing. Have your 2013 USSF patch on. Always pack a trash bag with your gear just in case the rains come and the fields are wet.
Always check the goals and the field before every game. Get the Player passes and or paperwork before kickoff. Also check how long you are playing each half. Do a pre-game with the other referees, so everyone is on the same page. Report any problems to the assignor after the game.
