Signup for Mark’s E-mail Distribution List

Even though the new website technically supports e-mail distribution…we have historically used an e-mail distribution list signup that allows you to signup from as many e-mail addresses as you want (work, home, parents, etc).

Most information is posted on the website – but we often have “immediate” info that needs to go out (need a referee for a game that day, etc)….this information is put first on the e-mail distribution list.

You can signup (or cancel your subscription) to the list at this link:   E-mail Distribution List

Hello SCSA Officials!

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Chris Hall. I am now the Director of Officials for SCSA. I have been involved in soccer for a long time. I have been playing the game since I was 5 years old and as an adult I still play soccer when I can. I have been officiating indoor soccer for over 10 years, USSF and High school soccer for 8 years, and collegiate soccer for 7 years. I am the facility manager at Sports Zone indoor soccer complex.

My biggest challenge as the new DOO is putting the faces of all the SCSA referees with their names. You will see me at the fields on the weekends, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself or ask questions if you need. If you think you are ready to advance in the games you officiate please get with me and I can come to your field and watch you so I can help you achieve this and relay it to the assignor. My email address is Please email me if you have any questions.

I look forward to working with all of you. See you at the fields.

Chris Hall
SCSA Director of Officials

SCSA Rule Change

SCSA has made the following rule change effective immediately:


  • Except as noted, substitutions shall be “unlimited”.
  • The team in possession may substitute anytime the ball is out of play (corner kicks, throw-ins). However, teams not in possession of the ball can only substitute during these situations provided that the team in possession is also substituting.
  • Free substituting is allowed for both teams after goals, goal kicks and at half time.
  • The substitutes must be at the centerline ready to enter before the referee will allow the substitution to take place.
  • The referee has the authority not to allow the substitution if he/she believes that the procedure will stop the flow of the game or is being used as tactical time wasting ploy.
  • If a player is shown a yellow card, the player must leave the field and the team official may substitute for the yellow-carded player, with the referee’s permission. The opposing team will be allowed one substitution at this time only if the team official elects to substitute for the yellow-carded player. The yellow-carded player may re-enter the field only at a guaranteed substitution.

 Basically the rules now mimic high school rules.  The only change from what we were doing before is that if one team is subbing the other can sub as well AND you can also allow substitution on corner kicks.    

Let me know if you have any questions,

Mark Bernat
