  • Use the referee report to file your reports for each game. You may submit a hard copy or e-mail the required info to levsocrref@aol.com.  Also, you can text a picture of your report to 516/318/6054.  If there is any issue with a game fill out REF REPORT on Sunday and send via email.
  • In the event of cancellations, an e-mail will be sent to all referees.  If you are refereeing any matches on the day games are cancelled, you should e-mail back a confirmation that the message was received.  If you do not respond within the hour, you will receive a phone call.
