UFA REFEREE RESPECT
We also wanted to remind you that UFA has launched a Referee Respect Campaign. We want to provide the safest and the best environment for players during training and games. Referee abuse has been on the rise and we want to do our part in protecting referees from verbal abuse so that we can keep them in the game longer and develop great officials.
There is a zero tolerance policy when it comes to coaches and parents using any derogatory language towards game officials or referees. There is no place in the game for adults to yell at, demean or intimidate young referees. Please understand that Forsyth County Parks & Recreation, Georgia Soccer and United Futbol Academy all have rules against referee abuse, and that includes verbal or physical abuse.
Please be respectful to all referees at all home and away venues as you represent yourself, your team and the club. Please also be mindful that you’re setting an example of behavior to your children.
The UFA Referee Respect Campaign guidelines with respect to Parent and Spectator misconduct are:
Thank you for your support and cooperation and we look forward to seeing you on the fields! Go UFA!
