The following lists the general code of dress for independently contracted soccer officials who agree to do games for the MWSRA clients. By accepting games from an approved MWSRA assignor, you also agree to this Uniform Policy and other standards set by MWSRA. These dress standards apply from the time you arrive at the game site until you leave the game site. All crew members are expected to be similarly attired.
Remember, your credibility depends upon how you are perceived by other referees, spectators, coaches, and players. Referees are professionals and are expected to dress professionally and appropriately while at the field, tournament site, or match you are officiating. You can be fined up to $25 for violating this uniform policy.
