GAME SIGN UP - will go live Mondays by 5:00PM.  It is first come, first to sign up.
*NEW referees please only sign up for the U6 age group.
*EXPERIENCED but are NOT certified referees, you can sign up for the U6 or U7 or U8 age group games.  
*CERTIFIED referees can sign up for any age group, but we would encourage these referees to sign up for the U8 age group.

You will be allowed to sign up for a maximum of 3 Games per day.  Unless you are a certified ref signing up for U8 games.

Sign up lists are sent out each Monday at 5pm for that week's games.

You must arrive at check in a minimum of 20 minutes before your game time to get your game card.  If your are late, then you will not be able to sign up for the following weeks games.  If you are late a second time then you are done for the season.  The coaches, players, parents, and Rush are all counting on you!
If you do not show up at all, then you are automatically done for the rest of the season.  I realize things happen, but there are lots of people depending on you!  Make sure in advance that you have you have everything planned properly.  Also, I know some of you ref other places on the same day.  Just make sure you do not sign up for games without more than enough time to get here on time.

Any abuse of the sign up process, the referee will be taken OFF THE LIST for the Season.  Sign ups will first go out to referees who are current Rush members (playing either recreational, Independent Premier, or Competitive through Rush).  If we find a non-rush member is signing up before allowed, then they will be removed from being able to referee the rest of the season.

You will need an 'ACCESS CODE' for each sign up.  This will be provided once sign ups OPEN via an email to ALL registered referees.  If you did not REGISTER, you will not get the email with the access code.  Please register - HERE
