Referee Misconduct Allegations: Procedures For Assignors

Assignor actions upon receiving a report of referee misconduct or inappropriate behavior:

Request a report from team officials of both teams, club or league officials at the game, spectators at the game, and the other referees at the game.

Contact the referee; ask the referee to explain what occurred, and explain that the reported behavior could result in disciplinary action.

Report the reported referee behavior to the State Referee Program office via email to Carol Shaeffer <>.

Remove the referee from future games until the report is adequately investigated.

After confirming the inappropriate behavior of the referee, inform other assignors in the area.
