The City of Fort Saskatchewan determines when soccer fields are open. During heavy or prolonged rain, play is not allowed on the fields.
Please refer to the "Rain Out Numbers" tab for City of Fort Saskatchewan rainout information.
If conditions are too wet/dangerous and the city has indicated the fields are closed, you are not responsible for showing up at the game, and you will not be paid for it.
In some cases heavy rain or lightening can occur after 3:00 p.m. In this case only the referee can cancel the game, therefore both teams have to be present at the game and await the referee's decision. If the fields are deemed unsafe due to heavy rain you may decide to cancel the game.
Rained out games will have new referee assignments.
You will be scheduled according to the dates that you indicate you are available.
If You Cannot Make it to Your Assigned Game
What to Wear
Referees and Assistant Referees are expected to dress appropriately at all games. Referee Jerseys must be worn over coats/sweaters (not under). Black shorts and socks are required. Community League referees may wear black track pants in cold weather if desired.
What if You Have a Problem?
If you have a serious problem with a coach, player or spectator, it is important that you make note of the situation as soon as you are able to. Put your concerns down in writing, with as much detail as possible, and email it to vicepresident@fortsasksoccer.
Referees are paid once a month for indoor and bi-weekly for outdoor. Payment is based on the signed games sheets you turn into the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Sports Association Office. Cheques will be mailed to you.
Rain out games - you will not be paid for these if the fields have been officially closed. Rained out games will have new referee assignments.
