Feedback for Referees*Parents and Coaches: Please note!*
Referees and assistant referees assigned to games in the Edson Minor Soccer Association have been trained and accredited by the Alberta Soccer Association. They attend a mandatory refresher to maintain their accreditation. If you have positive comment for the referee, please pass it on directly to the referee. If you have questions or comments about how a referee has interpreted the laws of the game or would like to pass on comments to the referee supervisor, please contact your league director. Do not address the referee directly: EMSA has zero tolerance for abuse of officials.
All players must wear soccer shin guards and socks over top for everyone’s safety. Soccer shoes (cleats) are recommended but not mandatory. Clothing must not create a safety hazard (no jewelry, hoodies, hats, etc.). Players should bring their own water bottles, insect repellent and sunscreen.
Parents, please help coaches by setting up/taking down nets/flags (U11: please put up/remove offside flags) and "refereeing" younger groups.
Be prepared to play in any weather: should field conditions be unsafe, cancellations will be posted on the website and Facebook page by 4pm. Referees will stop games in the event of electrical storms (or coaches for the age groups that do not use referees): please notify your child's coach if you see lightning, hear thunder or notice static electricity on the field (such as players' hair standing on end) and seek shelter in vehicles until the storm passes.
Referees are scheduled for house league games in U9 and older. Newer referees are assigned to the U9 and U11 divisions. Please model respectful behavior towards our referees as well as teammates, coaches and opponents.
Please help keep our fields clean! Pets must be on a leash at all times. The soccer fields are a non-smoking area (no smoking on school grounds).
Please do not park in the emergency access area or block the pedestrian crossing by the fieldhouse.
