What is expected of Tournament Officials:  All referees on the field are to wear the same color jersey with approved socks (three-stripe or USSF two-stripe).  Everyone must have his/her current 2018 USSF badge on at all times while refereeing.  When you are not refereeing please keep the professional image and wear your jersey tucked in at all times looking as you would on the field.  If you choose to take off your jersey please make it look clear that you are not a referee at that time.  Thank you all for your cooperation on this matter!

Tournament referees should have at minimum a YELLOW and BLACK USSF referee jersey.  Next preferred colors are RED, BLUE, and GREEN.  Referees wishing to work U13-U19 divisions should have at least three jersey colors to choose from.

Food & Drink:  Meal tickets will be provided for lunch from the tournament concession stand.  Water jugs will be available at mid-field of all fields or shared between multiples.  Use these to refill your water throughout the day.   Healthy snacks (bananas, apples, carrots, granola) will be available in the referee area as well.  Please make sure to eat right so you can perform well in your games.

Payment:  You will be paid on-site at the completion of all your games for the weekend.  Please make sure to pick up a payment slip at check-in and get it signed by me during your last break for the weekend so you can go directly to be paid after your last game.

Anyone only working Saturday games should fill out their payment form and leave the signed form at the designated place in the referee area.

Tournament Rules:  Current tournament rules PDF is attached below.  Intentional headers are NOT ALLOWED at U10 and younger ages.  Heading is allowed at U11 and above.  Only players may receive cards in USSF!  Substitutions are the same as regular league play.  Please read the rules prior to your first game of the weekend.  Thank you!

Grade Level Game Bonus:  If you are a State Referee (grade 6 or better) registered in 2018 you will receive a bonus for your attendance.  This benefit to attending the Lakers Classic will earn you a $40 bonus for every five games officiated.  This is how it works: 5-9 games officiated= extra $40, 10-14 game officiated= extra $80...for any level.  This works out to an average $8 additional per game!

Grade 7 Referee Game Bonus:  Grade 7 Referees will receive a $30 bonus for every 5 games officiated! (same structure as listed above)
