As part of the tournament approval process, Illinois Youth Soccer requires that its Tournament Directors and Tournament Referee Assignors attend a mandatory meeting. This year the two meetings will be offered on two dates:


DATE: Saturday, November 23, 2013 (Arlington Heights)

Tournament Referee Assignors meeting: 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon

Tournament Directors meeting:  1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

LOCATION:  IYSA Office, Lower level Conference Room, 1655 S Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60005


DATE: Saturday, January 4, 2014 (Belleville)

** Weather Cancellation RESCHEDULE DATE will be February 1, 2014 **

Tournament Referee Assignors meeting:  10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon.

Tournament Directors meeting:  1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

LOCATION:  SISL Office, 2346 Mascoutah Ave, Belleville, IL 62220


The “Tournament Director” and “Tournament Referee Assignor” meetings have been mandatory for several years.  IYSA will not approve tournaments for a club that fails to have their Tournament Referee Assignor or their Tournament Director attend the annual meetings.  There is no charge to attend either of the meeting locations.  However, if a club does not attend either the November 23, 2013 or the January 6, 2014 date, it will cost $100 to schedule an individual session for that club’s Tournament Director or Tournament Referee Assignor.


There is no pre-registration, just show up and be sure to “sign in” on the attendance log. There is nothing to bring, other than a pen and some note paper.


Clubs may send more than one person to attend the Tournament Director meetings.   The meeting will cover risk management concerns and procedures among other topics.
