Rules and Laws
Our referee didn’t show up…

In the odd instance where a referee doesn’t show up, coaches should work with the opposing team to have a parent or coach from each team referee half of the match each (i.e. a parent from team X referees the first half, and a parent from team Y referees the second half). When signing each others game sheets or players list, officials from each team should agree to play under these conditions.
