No referee?  Field scheduling issue?

  • For mini league games, proceed with the game with coaches from both teams refereeing half a game each.
  • For BCCSL games,  if the referee has not shown 15 minutes after the designated game starting time and both teams agree to play the game, the home team will referee the first half and the visiting team will referee the second half, unless it is agreed that one person will referee the whole game.  Refer to the BCCSL Guide for more info.
  • For  BCCSL Cup games, the game shall be abandoned and a replay shall be scheduled by the league.
  • For MSL games, if the referee has not shown 15 minutes after the designated game starting time it is recommended that coaches and managers decide on a mutually agreeable referee.  Refer to the MSL Policy for more info.

The NSYSA ref assignor this season is Aria Shokoohi.

If there is a pre-arranged cancellation between the teams or a referee does not show up to your game, you must notify the referee assignor by sending an email to or texting 604-363-1912. Please avoid leaving a voice mail. We will have a record of referee no shows for follow up action.
