TO BE OFFICIAL, GAMES MUST USE ASSIGNED LEAGUE REFEREES THROUGH OUR ASSIGNORS.
THIS IS FOR THE PROTECTION & FAIRNESS TO ALL TEAMS.
All Protests must be filed by the COACH of the team making the protest.
If the Officials do not check the team's rosters to see if they have the CMSA LEAGUE STICKER; than the teams must report this to their League Commissioner after the game.
Rosters & ID Cards are to be checked by the COACH or MANAGER. It is NOT the responsiblty of the Officials to check ID Cards. The Officials are responsible to check the Rosters (Only) to verify that it has been Stamped for CMSA league play. The league roster needs to have the CMSA League Sticker, Expiration Date & Stamped by a Registrar. If the roster is not completed than the game needs to be reported as a Scrimmage Game. The referees will oversee the ID Check if the teams want to check the ID cards. Scrimmage games will be officiated by the Referees.
Rosters & ID Cards are to be checked during check in. Any & all late arriving players must present their ID Card to the Official before they enter the game. If the opponent wants to question the eligibilty of the player it must be addressed with the referee when the player/players enter the game. If the players are not on the teams official League Approved Roster than the game will be declared a League Scrimmage Game & the Coach will be suspended for their next game. This must be reported to your League Commissioner after the game.
Officials are required to check the Team Rosters to verify that the game can be played as a League Approved Game.
