Our By Laws were updated and approved at the Special Meeting on August 19th, 2023.
|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|
Due to recent mandates, we (SVSRA) are required to include an adult in any communication that we have with minors.
To accomplish this, there is now a new field in everyone's profile called "CCEmail". 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 ...
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.
PERSONAL METERS - Look in the UPPER RIGHT CORNER and click on each of the boxes that are to CONFIRM your user data.
- All of your boxes MUST be or in order to be able to self-assign games!
- You will need to re-verify everything each year at the start of the fall season. (An box means that you are within 30 days of expiring that segment.)
|WYS/RCL U9-11 Player Development Initiatives|
The WYS/RCL U9-11 Player Development Initiatives are posted to our website. These rules apply to both NWU U9-12 Select and SkVYSA Rec matches played in our area.
Note - NO rules difference between Select or REC U9-11 matches.

Public Portion of the Site
This is the public portion of the site. The segments in the left column do not require access credentials.
This is where the public can file referee evaluations for matches which they may have watched in our area recently. This is commonly used by coaches, spectators, and league administrators. We may not respond directly to each evaluation. But, we do read them. We do address specific issues. We do commonly use the feedback in our ongoing training to help improve refereeing here in the Skagit Valley area. Positive feedback is certainly welcome here too!
There are several pages in this category. Feel free to browse them for more information about what we do and how we operate.
