||THREE WeekNight games - in need of refs - 3 on Thursday. Because many of our referees have a hard time getting there (work or school schedules don't let them get there on time) these are often hard to cover. If you are one of the ones that CAN get free - it helps a lot, even if you can only take one!|
||ATTENTION U10 REFS - if you have signed up to work a match at Marymoor this coming Saturday afternoon, please be aware that those games are being moved to accommodate other park activities this Saturday. Please log on and see where your game has been moved. If you are able to take the new assignment, please "confirm" you can by clicking on the . If not, let us know ASAP by clicking on .

||IMPORTANT REMINDER - In U10 and U11 play, deliberate heading is not permitted. (if it is done, the other team gets an IFK) - Also, the GK may not punt or drop kick the ball. Finally, some versions of the rules (including the "wallet card" that prints for referees) may incorrectly state that U11 play is 7v7 - U11 play is 9v9.|
