BASL supports the use of certified State or National referees via the Florida State Referee Association and their certification process.
If you would like to be a referee state level referee in Florida here is the website:
One of the requirements Florida State Referees follow is background checks and concussion training certification on an annual basis. Currently, this is done via the Official Management System. Background checks and Safe Sport education training are to be done every year and automatically expire on July 31st of every year.
DO NOT CONTACT US OR ANY OF OUR ASSIGNORS ASKING WHY YOU ARE NOT BEING ASSIGNED GAMES UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE THE ABOVE!
After you have identified yourself to the league and our assignors, you will need to fill out and submit a W9 form for our accounting, unless you are donating your referee services to us. BASL follows best practice accounting procedures for referee payments. A new referee to our leagues will be required to properly fill out a W9...including signature and have it submitted to your assignor for our accounting dept. No referee fees will be paid until a W9 has been received. The form can be found for download on the right of the screen.
BASL uses certified assignors: Perry Kale and Daniel Pillipow.
All our assignors above are Certified within the U.S. Soccer Federation and can be contacted via email
email@example.com (used for Florida game assignment communication)
Now that the above main initial steps have been done, BASL makes game assignments using their integrated league Referee Assigning system. This is typically a two-step process.
1. Our assignors work off a master schedule and do up a rough draft of assignments for the matches on the schedule. Typically the referees will be notified via Text Message to confirm that they can do the games. Our assignors expect a response within 30 minutes. If the referee confirms their availability via text message, then they will be listed on the pre-Game report.
2. As soon as the referee is listed, an automated email is sent to the referee of their specific game assignment. The referee confirms their assignment by logging into our system using the BASL Referee Login. Please note that if a referee declines the assignment at this stage we will be calling you up to document the reasoning of the "turn-back".
The emails the system will send you will contain the instruction on how to log in, but below is the link in case you need it:

Thanks for being part of our league!
You can take a look at all schedules, Standing and team pages on the links on the right side of the page.
Please remember that we have overlapping seasons. That means while one division is playing in the fall division another one may be in the winter division etc.
FM’s are in attendance when refs check-in each team. Center calls the name while an AR checks the picture (Currently 11 v 11 only)
If ID numbers on Rosters are not appearing for a particular player, allow the player to play and bring it up as an issue for the Field Marshal to resolve with our software systems support.
Please note no passes are needed for 7 v 7
In BASL’s small-sided divisions that play a regular schedule organized by the league then they have the same rights and privileges as any other team regardless of size. You should be using only a single referee for these games and the referees should wear their badges and all usual insurances apply. This includes outdoor 7v7 and indoor 6v6. This is per our US Soccer Federation Association.
For 11 v 11 Games are NOT to be shortened for any reason unless the game starts later than 15 minutes. (if a game starts 25 minutes late then halves can be shortened by 5 minutes each ONLY after approval has come from the Operations Manager or a BASL Board Member). Failure to follow this procedure exactly will result in no pay for any game that was shortened without approval.
When filling out Game Reports
Player In/Outs need to be clearly marked.
A Referee should never Write-In a player onto a roster. Any Write-Ins are to be done by the Field Marshal only. They are the only ones who can check with the Registrar and on-line to confirm the story of the player payment.
All players need to have a number associated with their name.
All writing should be legible. This information must be logged on to the website afterward. Make it understandable or it makes for a long night of trying to understand it.
When writing cards players' names, numbers, teams, and types of misconduct must be listed. For more serious situations, ask the field marshal for a paper to write any additional statements.
Please include your phone number on the game report. If we cannot understand what you write, we want to be able to call you to find out. If you don’t want us to call you, then please try fully filling out your report in a legible manner. This information is to help our league run more efficiently.
It is the field marshal's job to relay the information provided on the game reports to the league. It becomes a very complex task when the game reports are not filled out completely and legibly.
