The Ventura Chapter of the Southern California Soccer Referees Association serves members and leagues in the Ventura and Santa Barbara areas. Our members referee USSF affiliated games for the Coast Soccer League and Youth Tournaments sanctioned by California Youth Soccer Association-South. We are always in need of new as well as seasoned referees.
Membership Meeting Notice
General membership meetings are held the third Thursday of every month. Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 7:00 pm at Moorpark High School. The instructor will be our own Ian Anderson this month.
Meetings are held in the Education Center room at Moorpark High School, located on Tierra Rejada Road in Moorpark. Take California 23 to Tierra Rejada Road. Turn west and continue on Tierra Rejada Road approximately 3.5 miles. Turn right at Mountain Trail Street. The parking lot is on the left, 400 feet from Tierra Rejada at about 12450 Mountain Trail Street. Enter campus through the parking lot gate on the west side of the lot. Go between buildings L & K and then on to the end of building H. The Education Center will be on the right at the end of building H. Here is a map of the school.
Training Attendance Recorded
Attendance is recorded at each meeting and reported to Cal South where they consolidate your training attendance with training you get from other venues. The current training record for all attendees of our training sessions can be found on our Membership page.
Cal South and USSF Training, Certification & Upgrade Requirements
Cal South has established minimum requirements per year to ensure that recertifying referees are current with the latest trends in game management as well as the latest changes to and interpretations of the Laws of the Game. Please refer to the Cal South website for up to date training requirements.
If you move and change your US Mail address, you must inform SCSRA in two ways: (1) Update your address in Arbiter, and (2) Send email to Jeff Plunkett (Treasurer). Address changes in Arbiter do not synchronize with QuickBooks where checks are printed, so if you do not email the update to Jeff, your tournament check will be sent to your old address. Don’t let that happen to you.
Our fiscal calendar year runs from March 1 through the end of February of the next calendar year. An annual Membership Application and Dues are required each fiscal year as stated in our Constitution and Bylaws, Section III Membership, item (B). Membership dues are the only source of income for the association, so they are needed each year to meet the association’s financial obligations. These items are due by March 31 each year.
Game Assignment Questions?
Members with questions regarding their game assignments should contact our assignor, Ian Anderson, or our sub-assignor, Luis Gutierrez. See here for all Board members’ contact information.
