Assignors are licensed by US Soccer and registered through Ohio North and not through any district, league or local referee association. Assignors cannot discriminate against a registered referee because of race, religion, national origin, sex or membership in a local referee association. Age should only be a factor when the league mandates a minimum age difference between players and referees. Registered assignors will be given a list of all referees registered with Ohio North.
Unauthorized disclosure of a registered referees list
State Referee Administrators may furnish lists of referees only to state associations, registered assignors, affiliated leagues or tournaments for conducting their soccer related activities. These lists may not be made available to anyone else (including soccer related businesses) for a fee or free of charge. (2010 Administrative Handbook page 34)
