Guardian of the Game (Club A/R) Request




Fellow Rangers,

 

New this spring, each Indiana Soccer Club team is required to have a minimum of two (2) Club AR’s at each game, who will step in when the referee crew is short due to a no-show.  Towards that end, in 2022 the Rangers have done a great job increasing the number of local soccer referees.

  • In January we hosted a class of 16 new 11v11 Referees. 
  • In March we hosted a class of 34 new Small Sided Referees.(2nd largest SSR class in the state so far!)

Now, it is time for ALL adults in the Rangers Soccer Club to invest 15 minutes of their time, take a 10 question quiz, and become a

 

Guardian of the Game

 

This program has been designed by Indiana Soccer to ensure that if an official can't show up for a scheduled game, a "Guardian of the Game" can fill in as an Assistant Referee, helping the Center Referee identify ONLY when the ball goes in or out of bounds.  No fouls or offside calls are to be called by a Guardian Assistant Referee.

 

It would be GREAT when a center referee strolls over to our spectator side of the pitch and asks "Are there any Guardians of the Game here?", and every single adult hand goes up!!!

 

Please consider helping the game, which will in turn help our players. 

Only 15 minutes, and it is free.

Please let us know when you complete the course.
