Adult League Referees
There are two items that are different for Adult League games.
  1. No Slide Tackles (automatic red card)
    It is the decision of the board that slide tackles are not allowed at all. It is too dangerous for the players.
    It is advised that you never ever referee you own child at these matches (ask Mr. Huffer).
  2. Unlimited substitutions – every couple of minutes when there is a stoppage, ask if there are any substitutes.
Extra Program Referees
