Return to Play – 6/10/2020

The Maryland State Referee Committee (SRC) is closely monitoring the Return to Play Guidelines from US Soccer, USYS, MSYSA and MSSA, as well as safety guidelines from the local, state, and federal governments. While we have no specific dates as yet, the return of play appears to be nearing. As soon as allowed and safely possible, we will resume Referee Courses for the 2021 registration year, which begins on July 1st. The SRC is currently working on guidelines to help referees keep themselves as well as others safe when play resumes and will release these in the near future.

In the meantime, here are links to the 2020/2021 IFAB Laws of the Game as well as the 2020/21 Law Changes and Clarifications. There is also an excellent IFAB Laws of the Game app available for both Android and Apple devices.
