Referee Game Management

If a player is injured during the Game :

  • Stop play immediately, and stop time.
  • Decide if the injury is serious
  • Do not touch the injured player or allow anyone, other than the coach or trainer to touch him. There may be serious injury that could be made worse if he is moved, and if this happens, you could be held liable.
  • Signal for the coach or trainer to come aid the player
    • Use common sense – e.g. if a coach is already running onto the pitch, signal him in as if he were still on the sideline.
  • Remember that a player who is bleeding must leave the field of play and cannot return until you are satisfied that the bleeding has stopped and the wound has been covered.
