DISCIPLINARY GUIDELINES

1. ‘NO SHOW’ OF AN OFFICIAL

As an Official, whenever you accept a game assignment from a scheduler, you MUST either show up for the game or arrange for a replacement through your scheduler. You should notify them at least three (3) days in advance of any game you have taken and cannot work so they have adequate time to find a replacement for you. You are responsible for your assignment until you talk directly to the scheduler. Leaving a message DOES NOT count as a notification.

If you or one of the other officials do not show up for an assignment, you MUST inform your scheduler immediately after the game. If the assignment is for more than one game in a row, then the scheduler MUST be called as soon as you are sure that an assignment has been missed. This can be done between the first and second periods of the first game. This will enable the scheduler to possibly find a replacement or get the originally scheduled official to the remaining game(s). Every effort should be made to have a complete crew for each game.

2. OFFICIALS REPORT (GAME REPORT)

The referee MUST fill out a Game Report if there were any Game Misconduct and/or Match Penalties assessed during the game. The form must be completed online within 24 hours of the game. If a Match penalty was assessed, the referee MUST also file a report to the Pacific District Referee In Chief within 24 hours.

In addition, if the official has any penalties that require a Game Report, they must make sure the penalties are recorded correctly on the score sheet BEFORE signing it.

Failure to file a Game Report may result in disciplinary action by LVHOA.

An incorrect assessed penalty (score sheet review) will also be subject to possible disciplinary action.

3. CERTIFICATION OF OFFICIALS

All officials MUST send in a copy of the current year registration card and only the properly registered official will be assigned games.

After November 30th, any official who is not properly registered or does not have a current year crest displayed on his or her sweater will NOT be assigned games.
