Referees
As we all know refereeing is a thankless job that we all take for granted. It’s a tough job that requires the referee to be impartial and make their calls ‘as they see it’. So come on people, lets give the referee’s a fair shake this season. Remember these people are volunteers who give their time willingly, and are only human, so they may make some mistakes, without them there would not be a game. PLEASE RESPECT THE REFEREES DECISIONS AT ALL TIMES.

IT IS COMPULSORY YOUR TEAM HAS A NOMINATED REFEREE AVAILABLE JUST IN CASE THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF REFEREES.

Uniforms
Please ensure that your team are all wearing matching playing tops primarily to allow our referees to easily distinguish attacking players from defenders and in turn make their job easier.
ALL TEAMS MUST BE IN UNIFORM BY ROUND 3.

Failure to get your teams uniforms will result in loss of points.
