Fall kickoff refs needed starting Sept 7, 2019!
click here to submit RSVP each week

1. To Referee for CSC Home RECREATIONAL “Intercounty” Games click here to submit RSVP reservation form each week from Sunday AM to Tuesday 10pm for first consideration. If you miss the Tues deadline you can submit but risk missing the primary assignments. Each week RSVP’ing adds you to the ref pool that Cranford Soccer Club will use assign for these Cranford home games. For Fall 2018, CSC will assign referees for 16 teams (12 with ARs) ages U9 thru U13/15 giving great opportunities for Grade-8 & Grade-9 Refs. Assignment preference is given to Cranford students, is based on ref experience & competition level of the match. Every effort will be made to assign confirmed games by Wednesday noon which will let you submit MNJYSA/Travel availability by Wed night… but our timeline ultimately depends on game confirmation by coaches. 

SYSL U9-11 quarters "water break" DISCOURAGE IF SUBS. Instructions: 1/ halves are always running 26-min clock. 2/ around the mid-way mark (10-18 min whatever) when a natural ball stoppage occurs (out of bounds) the referee will 3/ whistle "WATER BREAK" and restart as expected after the 1-min water break. Summary: ref does not alter the game with ref-induced stops & re-starts.

2. To Referee for MNJYSA for all TRAVEL in Cranford, Westfield, Linden, Elizabeth, Rahway, etc. & Cranford U15/HS Intercounty games – click to email Referee Assignor Pete Milwicz the NJ Area 12 assignor for instructions to get in the MNJYSA ref assignment pool. MNJYSA handbook click here. NOTE – refs submit availability to Pete M each WED by 11:30pm & these assignments are typically sent to you on Friday. CSC IS NOT INVOLVED IN ASSIGNING THESE GAMES. If you submit/RSVP for MNJYSA prior to Cranford Intercounty game assignment you must re-submit the CSC form to update your availability for Cranford assigned games (above).

If you were assigned and have a CONFLICT please contact us ASAP. Double-booking assignments with CSC/MNJYSA & no-shows must be avoided. Just pick where/when you want to referee, RSVP, await assignment then confirm attendance.

Winter Sunday Indoor Youth League at CHS concluded Mar 10, 2019. Thank you referees for a great job this season, feedback on the program has been excellent!

The Referee's Role in CSC

Cranford Soccer Club utilizes USSF certified, paid Referees for Intercounty & Travel games as per our league affiliation. To prepare players for these Intercounty & Travel U9 programs CSC employs referees during our Spring HotShots season as well. In Hotshots the referees emphasize teaching proper play & ensuring the safety of all players. Referees might also be used for tournaments and scrimmages upon request. Please use the links on this page for more information. For more specific info or questions you may also contact the CSC HEAD REFEREE: Tom Haas | [email protected]
