Local Rules Talks

Each year we provide several "Local Rules" talks. All new referees should attend one of these talks. They last about an hour to an hour and a half. We will talk about the EYSA rules for the small-sided games - U08 through U12. We will also walk you through how to manage a game. And we will explain how to get paid. These talks will make your referee life much easier.

Talks this year:
Aug 25, 7PM at Robinswood Park (North End near the parking lot off of NE 24th St)
Aug 27, 8AM at South Mercer Playfield (between the baseball backstops)
Sept 1, 7PM at Newport Hills Park
Sept 3, 9AM at Issaquah Veterans Memorial Park (by the baseball backstop)

Next Matches

Our next matches will be at the preseason Jamboree on Aug 27. We'll send out email when we have a schedule. Probably Aug 23.
