REFEREE ASSAULT/ABUSE REPORT FORM

Probably the worst thing that can happen to a referee is to be assaulted or abused by a player, coach or spectator. Fortunately, these incidents are very rare, and most referees go through their entire career without ever becoming involved in an assault.

This on-line form is to be used to report assault and abuse of referees during USSF sanctioned games

What is the difference between Assault and Abuse?

Referee assault is an intentional act of physical violence at or upon a referee. Referee abuse is a verbal statement or physical act not resulting in bodily contact which implies or threatens physical harm to a referee or the referee's property or equipment. To boil it down to the simplest terms, if you are threatened it is abuse, but if you are touched it may be assault.

(You can read the entire text of the USSF policy in the Referee Administrative Handbook.)

What should you do if you are the victim of Assault or Abuse?

USSF policy requires referees who are the victim of either assault or abuse to notify the State President and the State Referee Administrator. Start by answering a few questions in the spaces below.
