REFEREE GROUND RULES
1. REFEREE BEHAVIOR
Have fun! Never yell at a player or react inappropriately. Always be friendly, but in control. All calls should be made quickly and confidently and referees should never argue with players. You are a representative of PSL and we're counting on you to show us in the best light possible. A smile goes a long way!
2. CONFIRM ASSIGNMENTS
Establish an Arbiter Sports Referee user account (via welcome invitation from PSL) with updated contact info and accept all game assignments.
3. ARRIVE EARLY
Referees are required to arrive 15 minutes prior to scheduled game times. Do not start games until 5 minutes after scheduled game times so teams can warm-up. For example, if the scheduled game time is 7:00pm, arrive by 6:50pm and start the game at 7:05pm.
4. LOOK PROFESSIONAL
Always bring a striped ref shirt (PSL issued shirt for softball, kickball and any monitored leagues), black shorts/pants, whistle, stopwatch and pen/paper. Never text or talk on the phone during games & stay focused.
5. LEAGUE RULES, SPORTSMANSHIP AND ALCOHOL/DOGS
Know the league rules thoroughly and keep a copy with you at all times. PSN does NOT tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct such as dangerous / overly physical play, profanity, taunting, arguing or fighting. Handle unsportsmanlike behavior early and use warnings, partial-game and full-game ejections to discipline players. Alcohol and dogs are prohibited. Stop games until they are removed from facility. Notify facility supervisors if you see empty beer cans when arriving.
6. REPORTING SCORES AND INCIDENTS
Report scores using the online form by noon the next day and report ALL incidents on the form (equip issues, facility problems, unsportsmanlike conduct, injuries and remember to get names of any players involved in an incident). Always indicate if you need replacement equipment or first aid supplies.
7. PLAYER ELIGIBILITY AND TEAM FORFEITS
All players are required to have their PSL shirt. Please report the name and team for any players missing these items. In the event of a forfeit, do everything possible to make a scrimmage happen! Please ask PSL players from the previous game to participate and help organize teams to start the game promptly. Scrimmages should be officiated as if it were a real game. If a game ends early, give the teams the option to play additional refereed time for fun.
8. MVP HIGHLIGHTS
Report a game highlight on score report form and include player names if possible.
9. WEATHER CANCELLATIONS
Referees will be informed of cancellations via email only. Due to limited rain-dates, games will not be canceled unless there is severe weather or facility closures. Should the weather take a sudden turn for the worst, it is up to your discretion whether or not to play, cancel, or postpone the start/continuation of the game. If you do cancel, please contact PSL immediately so we can inform teams of later games.
PSL PAYROLL SCHEDULE (for applicable staff)
Officials' & staff payments by PSL (when applicable) are processed on a bi-weekly basis, encompassing the previous 2 week period per the schedule below. Mailed checks will be sent to the address provided on the required W9 form submitted upon work authorization. Days worked in the month of December will be included in a payment posting at the end of December prior to the change in calendar year.
All officials & staff will have an Arbiter account for scheduling and payment information purposes. Paysheets & breakdowns are available to be viewed within your Arbiter account. Officials and staff can view paysheet details in Arbiter by clicking the PAYMENTS on the blue menu bar and then PAYSHEETS in grey bar below. If you click on the small calendar thumbnail to the right of a listed paysheet, it will show your paysheet info with clickable data for more detail. If a paysheet isn't available to view for any given pay period, you either had no work recorded during that month or paysheets have yet to be processed (if viewing in advance of the payment date for that cycle, check again closer to or on the paydate). Paysheets will remain accessible throughout the year and will be archived/removed each January for the previous year (historical payment information is available upon request once offline).
