  Severe Weather

From the NFHS Lightning Guidelines

  • Monitor local weather conditions before and during events
  • When thunder is heard, or lightning is seen, the thunderstorm is close enough to strike your location with lightning
  • Suspend play and take shelter immediately
  • Thirty Minute Rule - Once play has been suspended, wait at least 30 minutes after the last thunder is heard or flash of lightning is witnessed prior to resuming play
  • Any subsequent thunder or lightning after the beginning of the 30 minute count, reset the clock and another 30 minute count should begin

ADHERE TO THIS STRICTLY - THERE IS NOT ROOM FOR COMPROMISE!!!

 

  Terminated Games

There is not a mechanism involving CIAC to report game termination or suspension. If you terminate a game send an email to the SCSOA President and the SCSOA Assignor. They will inform the School Athletic Directors.

The following information is neccesary:

  • Game Venue, Teams, Time of Termination and Score at that time
  • DO NOT OFFER ANY INFORMATION REGARDING THE FINAL OUTCOME OF THE GAME
  • CIAC will administer the Rules of competition (not the Refeeres)

SCSOA eReferee System

SCSOA will continue to use the on-line SCSOA eReferee System since its sucessfull implementation in the 2013 fall season. The SCSOA eReferee System will be expanded and continue to provide many on-line conveniences such as completing the yearly Recertification process on-line, paying the yearly fee/dues via credit card and on-line game reporting.

Read the following document for an overview of the SCSOA eReferee System's Account Login, Recertification and Yearly Fee payment process:

SCSOA Referee Report Requirements

  • All Soccer games officiated by SCSOA Referees will require the "Head" Referee to fill out and submit a Referee Report via the on-line SCSOA eReferee System within 24 hours of the game. Login to your account at SCSOA eReferee and select the link "Input Game Report & Teams" Sportsmanship Rating" from Account Utilities.

    For Referee Assault, Referee Abuse, Serious Injury, or any other Substantial or Unusual Occurrences be sure to fill out the section "Referee Supplementary Report" and contact your board President immediately after the game!!!
     
  • All "Cards" at all levels (Boys and Girls, Varsity, JV and Freshman) must be reported. The "Head" Referee will logon to CIAC Online Card Reporting and fill in the appropriate information (each card must be submitted individually). If you make a mistake while submitting a card (wrong name, wrong school, wrong infraction, etc.) do not submit the same card a second time; e-mail Matt Fischer, Director of Information Services, CIAC at mfischer@casciac.org with the report ID you got when you submitted the card (something like 2008-123) and the correction(s) that need to be made and we will make the correction(s) for you. If no cards are given this step is not necessary.
