ECNL Referee Procedures


The Elite Clubs National League (“ECNL”) is the country’s top league for female soccer players, teams and clubs, including the nation’s top 66 girls youth soccer clubs, at U14 through U18. As the best female competition platform in the country, the ECNL requires the best referees in the country. Thank you for accepting the assignment to referee in the ECNL.

No player card = No play. NO EXCEPTIONS

If a player is not in possession of a player card, that person cannot play in the game. PERIOD. We have had several instances - in the adult league - where players were allowed to play with just a drivers license. Turns out, these players were not registered (yes, they lied). Any referee who allows a person to play without a proper ID card, will be sanctioned. This is a serious issue that must be addressed.


From Referee Director Dave Adams - For CSL jr's. only

1.Match reports continue to come in promptly.

2.IMPORTANT: DO NOT pull player or coaches cards for anything other than Violent Conduct and Referee Assault.

3. If there is a case of violent conduct or Referee assault then they will need to submit a report on what happened, simply writing violent conduct on the match report is not enough for us to go by when determining suspensions.

CSL Match Reports

You will be given a Match Report by the home team for every CSL game. These Match Reports MUST be mailed into CSL within 48 hours after the match is complete. Failure to do so will result in a fine of $25.00. In addition, you will not be assigned to a match for a period of 2 weeks. It is your responsibility to make sure that Match Reports are mailed in to CSL. Giving a Report to someone else to mail in is not recommended and will not be an acceptable excuse.

Thank you and have a great season
