Reporting Field Issues

As match officials prior to the start of each match, we should inspect the fields to ensure that the fields themselves are safe for play.  In the event that you are assigned to a field that is unsafe or just needs maintenance, you should report any issues to the Director or Assistant Director of Referees via e-mail.  Field maintenance is the responsibility of the Cosumnes Service Districts, however to get the issues resolved we must notify them.  In the E-mail include specific issues and a picture of the issue.  The Directors of Referees will filter and forward your reports to the Leagues Field Assignor who directly deals with the CSD.
