Dual Referee System of Control (Two Referee System)
SBSRA uses the Dual Referee System of Control (Two Referee System) in some of our 7v7 leagues. In addition, some “friendly” matches may utilize the Dual Referee System of Control.
To prepare for such assignments, please review these self training materials on the Dual Referee System of Control:
- Dual Referee System of Control from the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS)
- Dual System of Control from the National Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association (NISOA)
NOTE: Do not use the Dual Referee System of Control for any USSF/Cal South sanctioned match. If the third referee fails to show up, use a club-lines person, do not use the Dual System.
