WYSA and FC Northwest put the responsibility on the coaches to be prepared and appoint an RL without waiting for a reminder on insistence from the referee. The purpose of this position is to assist referees in ensuring parents and coaches refrain from criticism of these referees. An RL will be on the parent - side of the field and ask parents to refrain from complaining to a referee.
It is the intent of this program to provide sideline support for our referees. Each year we lose about 50% of new referees because of parents and coaches intimidation. We need everyone - assistance in keeping our referees in the game.
Thank you for your assistance in this regard.
