WYSC Game Assigment Priorities
While WYSC tries to balance games assigned to all registered referees the following criteria is used when assigning games:
Professionalism displayed in the past when referring with WYSC.
Availability: the more available you are during the season (according to the availability form submitted) the most likely you would receive assignments.
Experience: new referees only would be assigned U10 AR position, and hence limiting the number of games they could be assigned to.
WYSC members would be prioritized over non-WYSC members.
