USSF Certified Refs Out Until July 1st Empty USSF Certified Refs Out Until July 1st

It seems to me without refs being able to work until July 1st it's going to be pretty hard for any leagues that haven't already canceled their Spring or early Summer seasons to move forward.

From Bill Davey, member of the USSF Referee Committee...

“US Soccer's referee department has confirmed that the liability insurance coverage provided by USSF that covers Referees is suspended until June 30, 2020.

Starting league games prior to that date will not be provided with certified Referees.”

- Bill D

From Rick Eddy - USSF Director of Referee Development

"US Soccer has a blanket liability policy for referees. Since we have canceled or postponed our events through June 30th, the liability policy does not cover referees. We do not carry medical /health insurance for referees. If a referee was sued by a player, coach or parent because they contracted COVID, there would not be insurance coverage. The Federation is working on “return to activity “plan. It will be announced when it’s completed. US Soccer is recommending competitions to follow CDC and local public health guidelines on staying safe through the COVID-19 pandemic."

Stay safe,

Rick

This brings up the age old question: If there is no certified referee around to miss the call, was the call really missed?
