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:
