Amateur Sports Officials Assault Protection Bill
On Dec 30, 2022, the Washington State House of Representatives has added to their docket for the upcoming “2023 Regular Session” a bill
requesting to add amateur sports officials to the assault protection that many other public serving professions already receive. Should
this bill pass, Washington State will be only the 23rd state in the U.S. with any type of codified protection for amateur sports officials.

Managing Referee Abuse & Assault
Soccer referee abuse and assault are very serious crimes against the sport and they continue to happen to our members. Misconduct against referees may occur before, during, and after a match — including travel to and from a match. It is critical that referees correctly identify and make a report of these incidents. Your SRC has developed two pages to assist you in recognizing and dealing with Referee Abuse and Assault. The first page provides information on recognizing abuse and assualt and how and when to report it. It may be viewed on the page Refereee Abuse & Assault. Guidance for how you should conduct yourself when you experience Abuse or Assault is provided on this Supplemental page. A link is also provided in the sidebar and the right of this page.
It is requested and recommended that all recertifying and new referees complete the new lesson providing online
instruction on recognizing and dealing with Referee Abuse and Assault.
Concussion Protocol Player Development Initiatives
Washington Youth Soccer has instituted the US Soccer Concussion Protocol and Player Development Initiatives
Rules of Competition for all Youth Small Sided Games (SSG-U6-U12)
with modifications. These initiatives are effective immediately. To assist in the education of Washington State Referees, an online course has been created.
This course has been included in the Annual Recertification lessons. However, some referees have already recertified for 2017-2018 and we encourage you to take
the online course at the following link:
