Fans who scream at officials are hurting young people who work as referees for minor sports across Canada, and are being blamed for a shortage of soccer referees. Read more

NEW  We as an association, have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to abuse of the officials, therefore if you would like to provide your opinion of the referee we ask you to wait until the game is over and use the form on our website to notify us of your dissatisfaction or satisfaction.  You do not need to know the name of the referee to use the form.

We hope that in deciding to use the feedback form you will use it to tell us both the positive and negative experiences you have had.  LISA does not schedule the referees but we will work with the head referee schedulers of each club to share the information we receive to assist in assigning the most appropriate ref for each game and mentor any referees that might need assistance.

Remember, there would be no game if we didn’t have referees so let’s keep them in the game!  LISA Referee Feedback Form (click here)
