Rule Change For RCL U-12

RCL has modified the rules for U-12 matches. Effective immediately, U-12 matches will follow the same rules as U-11. This means: No deliberate heading, Goalkeepers cannot punt the ball back into play, and build-line will be used. This also means that offside will only be enforced from the build-out line to the goal line. This ONLY affects RCL matches. In the Skagit Referees area, that means ONLY NW United FC matches are affected. All other matches will continue to follow current rules.

New Profile Requirements for Minors

An email address in this field will automatically be "Carbon Copied" (CC) in all messages/emails sent via this site. If you are a minor (less than 18 years old), this field will be populated with the email address that you have filed with the WASRC as your "parent email". If you are a minor, the "CCEmail" field and your Date of Birth are locked out from modification (lockout releases when you reach age 18). If these fields are incorrect or if you need additional parent/guardian email addresses added, you will need to contact the webmaster for assistance.
Adults can utilize the ...

Local Training

SVSRA is implementing supplemental website-based training for Referees. Some training will be required in order to work matches in our area (LOTG updates are an example). Other training will be optional. However, Referees who choose to do the optional training might get priority in match assignments. Referee Assignors will not be overriding the self-assign rules for a failure to complete the training. See Referee>Training for details and to get started.
