Last year (in Southern California), we had a hard time in NFHS pre-season games to get the goals secured. Generally, things improved once the season began. ...larry savell -----Original Message----- From: Discussion of Topics for Soccer Referees [mailto:[log in to unmask]]On Behalf Of Gil Weber Sent: Friday, July 26, 2002 6:38 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Re: Resources: Family of Montreal boy crushed to death by... soccer ** Reply to message from Andrew Castiglione <[log in to unmask]> on Thu, 25 Jul 2002 21:38:54 -0700 Please note, all referees registered in USSF: The revised ATR, section 1.3, says that the game SHALL NOT BE PLAYED if the goals are not properly secured. It does NOT give the referee ANY latitude in this matter (e.g., "the visiting team travelled two hours to get here, ref. Can't we just play with some soccer bags sitting on the net?"). This is a serious safety matter. The game SHALL NOT be played. Period. End of discussion. Follow the ATR so this does not happen to you!
