My Assignment Area

I have created this map as a reminder of which clubs I assign. The blue clubs are both SJSL (boys) and SJGSL (girls) members. The red clubs are SJGSL (girls) members. I assign the boys on Sundays as well as the Girls U15-U19 on Sundays. Occasionally, one of these teams will have a make-up on a Saturday and I will assign it. In general, however, if you receive an Arbiter assignment for a team that normally plays on Saturday, it will NOT be from me.

On Sundays, the Burlington County riverfront from Burlington Township south as well as Moorestown, Mount Laurel, Marlton and the areas south and west are assigned by John Barna. If you are not sure from whom the assignment came, contact both of us.

Besides these SJSL and SJGSL league games, I also assign regional EDP, APL, MAPS and JAGS matches for a number of these same clubs. These can be any day of the week. I use the same referee pool for the SJ and the regional leagues, so to be assigned regularly to EDP, MAPS, etc. by me you must be a SJSL-approved referee.

I also assign EDP tournaments on weekends that are not regular SJ league weekends. These include the especially busy weekends of Columbus Day, Memorial Day, and Father’s Day. Finally, I assign sanctioned futsal matches for the Rancocas Valley Futsal League in the Mount Holly area…

Futsal is a soccer-like sport played indoors. It originated in South America. Unlike the US sport of indoor soccer, it is not played with walls (as in ice hockey). Instead, it is played with touch and goal lines within which the ball must be kept as in soccer. A special weighted ball is used, and the size of the pitch is about the size of a large basketball court. Futsal is a sport in its own right, with clubs that play only futsal, and many levels of competition (including a World Cup).
