Each week all Directors carefully review scores and yellow/red cards. At times schedules and standings will show a CONFLICT. These are identified with games having a red "C or a red “S” in place of the score. CONFLICTS ocurr when each team has entered conflicting ("C") scores ("S") or cards ("C") into the system. The weekly Roster Game Report hard copies we receive from both the home and away teams enable us to review and correct any game result CONFLICTS that appear in the system. Please give us one week to make these corrections. If it is not corrected by your next game then e-mail your circuit director.
Prior to your scheduled game, print your Official Match/Roster Game Report using 3-part carbonless paper. Each copy must have all player jersey numbers input and printed onto the form and signed by the coach or team manager before it is given to the referee. This is verifying that all player names on the roster are registered to the team and are legal. Print your Roster Game Report on 1 day prior to your game (to ensure any updates are included). In general you should not hand write in any name on the game sheets. The only exception to this is if the player registers Friday night and game sheet/rosters have already been printed. In this scenario, it is acceptable to hand write players name in; if the player is not legally registered then the team forfeits the game.
Players participating in Presidio Soccer League circuits are only legal to play for the team they are officially registered with - Club Passes are not allowed! Club Passing is allowed in the San Diego Developmental Academy (SDDA) only in an upward direction. Violation of these rules is illegal and will result in the game being declared a forfeit along with the coach being suspended!
MANDATORY: Upon completion of the game both Roster Game Reports must be initialed by either the manager or coach. Please look at the game report before you initial it. Double check the score; MAKE SURE that ALL yellow and red cards given to the correct player/coach and are listed along with the valid code as listed at the bottom of the Roster Game Report.
Presidio requires that all jersey numbers should be listed and printed in the Roster Game Report. If they are not, then you MUST hand write them in before giving them to the referee.
ADDING JERSEY NUMBERS IN THE SYSTEM
To add player jersey numbers to the Roster Game Reports: Log-in under coaches or manager’s user name and password. Click on “My Account” screen and scroll to the bottom where team Id # is listed and click on the "edit link". This brings you to the team roster page. Scroll to the bottom and click on "edit player info". Both Home and Away columns should be filled out. Once you do this it does take about 20 minutes for the system to capture the information.
Both home and away teams are responsible for inputting scores and cards within 48 hours of the completion of the game or before your nex game if it is the next day. IT IS MANDATORY THAT BOTH TEAMS INPUT ALL YELLOW AND RED CARDS THAT ARE RECEIVED FOR PLAYERS AND COACHES.
All player cards MUST BE LAMINATED. Teams without properly laminated player cards are subject to forfeiting games. The exception is if a team forgets their cards or if they are not laminated, the Roster Game Report may be used to play the game but ONLY the players with pictures on the Roster Game Report are eligible to play.
RED & YELLOW CARDS
A player or coach receiving a red card automatically needs to sit out their next scheduled game. DO NOT wait to be notified by your Director. Once the Presidio Director receives the referee report & your Roster Game Report then they will assess the situation and will follow-up with the team if there are any additional games that player needs to sit out. Depending on the reason for the red card, a player or coach can receive additional game suspensions. If you are not sure please email the director for your circuit.
RED CARDS: Suspended players or coaches must have their names crossed off the Roster Game Report by the system for all games they are suspended. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY THAT WE CAN VERIFY THAT THEY HAVE SAT OUT THEIR SUSPENSION. IF THE NAME IS NOT CROSSED OFF BY THE SYSTEM THEN WE ASSUME THEY PLAYED AND MORE GAMES WILL BE ADDED TO THE SUSPENSION. If THE NAME IS NOT CROSSED OFF BY THE SYSTEM, THE COACH OR TEAM MANAGER MUST CROSS OUT THE SUSPENDED PLAYER'S NAME AND HAVE THE REFEREE ACKNOWLEDGE BY INITIALING NEXT TO THE SUSPENDED PLAYERS NAME. Circuit directors will then follow up to confirm the suspension was served.
COACHES RED CARDS: This is very important especially to the coaches that have more than one team that they are coaching. If you receive a red card then you CAN NOT COACH ANY OTHER TEAM UNTIL YOU SIT OUT YOUR SUSPENSION FOR THAT GAME/TEAM.
Example: If you have a Sat. 8:00 am game & you get red carded but you also have a Sat 1:00 game for another team. YOU CAN NOT COACH THE 1:00 GAME.
If the following week your 2nd team has an 8:00 am game and the team that you got red carded has a 1:00 game. YOU STILL CAN NOT COACH THE 8:00 AM GAME. If you do coach then the number of games that you get suspended for will be increased.
Only a player or substituted player may be shown the red or yellow card. When coaches are sent off, the red card is not shown.
Verbal warnings (Cautions) are considered a yellow card. Coaches are responsible for their sideline behavior, so if parents become disruptive, the coach will be sent off. PARENTS OR SIDELINES CAN NOT BE RED CARDED – COACHES WILL BE SENT OFF WHEN SIDELINES ARE DISRUPTIVE WHICH IS COUNTED AS A RED CARD!
From time to time we receive letter/emails regarding the performance of referees. Please be aware that Presidio Soccer League does not contract directly with any referees or referee associations - leagues do. The exception is in the case of Presidio Cup or SDDA tournaments or showcases.
For regular season games, each club contracts directly with an approved referee association. Presidio has no contractual relationship with referees for regular league games.
For referee related issues, please contact the appropriate club official responsible for the referees, often a member of the board of directors and advise them of any concerns. They in turn can contact the referee association or the referee themselves.
All referees must be registered and have their Cal South Referee ID Card in their posession. Referee registrations are managed through Cal South. Once referee registrations are complete Cal South will forward referees their your ID Card. Referee's must show Official Cal South provided ID Card at any Presidio or SDDA game they are assigned to.
If the center referee forgets to bring his Cal South Referee ID Card to the game, Presidio/SDDA has instituted the following procedure before the start of the game:
- One of team’s manager or coach should call either of the individuals below to verify the referee’s status:
||Presidio Vice President
If the referee cannot be verified as being official, the game should not be played and the game shall be rescheduled. Home field advantage is lost and the home team is still responsible to pay the referees if/when the game is rescheduled.
- Any Referee who forgets his card more than twice shall no longer be assigned to games unless he or she agrees to bring their official card to all future games. If the referee forgets a card a third time the referee is suspended from doing any future games, pending discussion with Presidio Vice President.
Center referees must be qualified to referee the assigned age group. Center referees must be a minimum of 2 years older than the circuit playing age. It is the referee assignor’s responsibility to properly assign the entire referee crew.
Referees are required to input game results online within 24 hours of the game. Input must include both red and yellow cards, scores and misconduct reports. They are also required to forward a hard copy of the Roster Game Report via scan/email (preferred method)l, fax or U.S. mail to the appropriate circuit director as listed on the bottom left of the Roster Game Report.
Each team is also required to enter the game results every game for both teams, including game score, yellow and red cards. To help eliminate game conflicts the information must be reported the same by each team. It is important to indicate all cards given toghet with the exact reason for each card. DO NOT JUST PUT IN YELLOW CARD OR RED CARD WITHOUT A SPECIFIC REASON.
- Home team will provide the referee a signed Roster Game Report on 3-part carbonless paper.
- Signature for the Visiting Team is required and should be done prior to checking in the teams at the bottom of the sheet by a team representative before the game.
- All players MUST have a laminated player card or have a picture on the roster if card is missing.
- The coach must have a laminated coach’s card. Any coach from that club can coach the team provided they have a card at the game. If they do NOT have a card and NO coach is available to coach then the game MUST be forfeited.
- Yellow & Red cards given must be on noted game sheet/roster with the proper code listed.
- REFEREES ARE NEVER TO KEEP CARDS IF PLAYER/COACH IS RED CARDED, EXCEPT FOR ASSULT. Return ALL of the cards to the team after the game.
- After the game, a representative from each team needs to verify the score is correct by initialing the score on all copies.
- The center referee, home team and away team each keep one copy of the Roster Game Report. All reports should have the same information on them.

Any red card given must be reported using the online system within 24 hours and a supplemental report provided in the Comment Section. Depending on the reason, suspensions are generally between 1 and 3 games. The report MUST include the specifics on red cards that involve violent conduct. This is an automatic 3+ game suspension so report must include all details. When forwarding supplemental reports, please provide circuit directors with a phone number in case they need to contact you with follow-up questions. Every year, there are SEVERAL out of hand PARENTS and COACHES who are suspended. Reminder that coaches are responsible for the behaviour of their sidelines. In order to keep the games under control, referees should first warn coaches when deemed necessary.
After the warning:
- If a spectator disrupts the game, STOP the game and ask the coach to have the spectator leave. If the coach does not promptly get the spectator to leave or if the spectator does not leave, issue a send off to the coach. If there is no other administrator with a coach’s card then abandon the game.
- If it is the coach who disrupts the game, STOP the game, issue a send off to the coach. If there is no other administrator with a coach’s card, abandon the game.
Remember that the actual red card DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SHOWN TO A COACH. The send off is the RED CARD.
Younger referees must not hesitate to enforce this. Presidio Soccer League will not tolerate the verbal abuse of referees, especially younger referees. The Presidio Soccer League does support and stand behind referees reporting coach/player/parent/sideline abuses.
