EMSA Guidelines for Coaches Regarding Feedback for Referees:
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 course to maintain their accreditation. If you have positive comments for the referee, please pass them 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 director, please contact your league director. Do not address the referee directly: EMSA has zero tolerance for abuse of officials.
Referees: Please call Georges immediately if you have any issues with parents or coaches.
