||Matches NOT yet available for assignment - folks may see that our younger recreational matches are now loaded into the system. However, we are NOT permitting self-assign (or requests) yet. This is because there are often changes when coaches see their schedules for the first time. We will permit assignments in a week or so. An email will be sent to our registered referees at that time. REMEMBER: If you try to sign up for a match and see a "FAIL" notice - click on the ? for an explanation.|

||CHANGES - Please be aware that there is a major re-write of the rules of competition for fall play, in particular for ages U12 and under. Older ages will also see some changes because of the changes made to the Laws of the Game by FIFA. More information should be available by the beginning of August.|
