NY Metro Policy on NISOA Uniform Update

As you may know, NISOA has approved a new uniform design and sock for 2018. Our chapter strongly recommends all members acquire the new uniforms immediately considering the significant savings available for a limited time. While the older grid style jersey design is an approved option, Official Sports International is discontinuing production of these jerseys.

Members who do not purchase the new uniforms may risk not being eligible for assignments as some assignors may consider the ability to dress alike as selection criteria.

Chapter policy allows all approved uniforms to be worn (older grid style, new style, three stripe sock and new one stripe sock) in all colors provided all of the officiating crew is dressed alike. As always, we strongly suggest the referee contact all members of the match crew before the game to confirm match details including the planned uniform for officials.

2017 Chapter and Sportsmanship Awards

Our chapter is asking our members to once again take five minutes from their busy lives to vote for referee and coach sportsmanship awards. The award recipients will be honored by our chapter at our dinner on Monday night, November 13. We ask that you download, complete the ballot and send your responses to Randy Vogt. If you cannot complete all seven categories, try and do so by including games from the past few years and not just 2017, and if needed, matches on all levels. Thank you!
