Q. Do I need to block out Sundays for Grade 9 ARs ?
A. Absolutely. While we do have travel matches on Sunday that we would not normally use Grades 9 for Sunday is our rain makeup day. If a Saturday match is rained out a referees assignment will roll over to the rescheduled game unless it is blocked. Of course, the assignor then has to scramble to get games reassigned and needs to know that Sunday blocks are up to date in Arbiter too.
Q. What fields do Grade 9 ARs work?
A. A Grade 9 is restricted to recreational games ages 14Uand below. Therefore, they could be on any field. A first-season, especially a young first-season referee may only be assigned AR at Howison (09U, 10U, 12U) but could be assigned at Chinn or Tyrrell up to 14U. We especially can use officials with the 07U and 08U which currently play at Fred Lynn Middle School.
