High School Soccer Officials of
Central Florida… Practices
History
High School Soccer Officials of Central Florida (HSSOCF) is a local
group of soccer officials organized and affiliated with the Florida
High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). Established in 1981, we
now have more than 180 registered members who officiate the
majority of the high school soccer matches in Lake, Orange,
Osceola and Seminole counties.
Mission
• The HSSOCF is dedicated to the continuing development of soccer
referees. We provide a forum for our members to meet and discuss
soccer, refereeing, and related matters. We also provide ongoing
training and developmental assessments for our members.
• We believe very strongly that a referee's first and foremost
responsibility is to the game of soccer... to insure a safe venue for
every player - regardless of age, skill or experience - to enjoy the
game fully.

schools and officials.

Regular Season
• Assignor begins assigning 4 weeks out.
• Everyone currently active is treated equally with assignments
(not games).
• 2-3 weeks out, Assignor continues to work through with equal
assignments as much as possible, keeping schedule
availability in mind.
• Once the game is less than 2 weeks, Assignor will go to his
“short list” of officials who have specifically contacted him
about being available for a specific night.
