MKSC Reschedule Policy 

The Milwaukee Kickers must be informed of all game cancellations. You will be responsible for paying referees if teams do not show up and the Milwaukee Kickers were not contacted 48 hours prior to the scheduled game.

Games may not be moved to a different location without approval from Jaclyn Theune, Rental and Scheduling Coordinator at the Milwaukee Kickers office. The assigned home teams are responsible for the communication and arrangements on cancelled and rescheduled games.

All reschedule game requests must be made at least five days prior to the potential new game date. For example, to reschedule a game on a Saturday, it must be approved by Monday of that week; Sunday, Tuesday of that week, and so on.

To reschedule a game:

Step 1 – Talk to your opponent and agree upon two or three dates and times that work for both teams.

Step 2 – If you need to reschedule a Tosa home game, please contact Tim Winn at

For all other locations, email your request to Jaclyn Theune, the Milwaukee Kickers’ field scheduler. Please include all of the original game information (date, time, field, league and opponent) and the suggested new game information in order of preference when contacting any of the people above.                        

Step 3 – Jaclyn or Tim will review the reschedule options and notify you if the reschedule is approved or not.

Step 4 - Once the game is approved, the Milwaukee Kickers will update the schedule and take care of all appropriate referee assignments.

NOTE: If your team participates in the State League or the SECL, you must receive approval from Patrick Hodgins before cancelling a game and making reschedule arrangements. Jaclyn Theune can make field arrangements for the rescheduled game, but the schedules will not be updated with new game details until the State Office has approved the change. If a game is cancelled due to weather/field conditions, approval from Patrick is not necessary.

Zero Tolerance Policy

WYSA has created the Zero Tolerance Policy in an effort to decrease the abuse of referees. The purpose of this policy is to make clear that verbal abuse or negative criticism of referees is as unacceptable as verbal abuse or negative criticism of players.

This policy adopts basic standard sanctions for improper conduct. This policy is not intended to imply that referees are always “right” and the spectator or coach is always “wrong”. Just as players make mistakes during play and coaches may err in strategy or methodology, referees will make mistakes in officiating, particularly in the younger divisions where they are learning how to referee. Due to a persistent shortage of referees, a referee may be officiating at a higher level game than they are comfortable with. They must receive positive support from coaches and spectators to continue to grow as an official.

A coach or spectator may only communicate in a positive way with a referee. The coach is responsible for ensuring all spectators associated with his/her team follow these guidelines relating to communication with a referee; especially a referee. A coach/spectator may not express any disagreement or dissatisfaction with the officiating to the youth referee. A coach/spectator may not, before, during, or after a game, discuss with a referee their critique of the referee’s performance, other than to thank and compliment the referee.

If a coach, player or fan is harassing a referee, the referee has the right to take the following measures to cease harassment:

  1. Go to the offending team's coach and ask them to control themselves or their personnel.
  2. If the problem persists after the above measure is taken, the referee may go back to the coach and ask the offending party to remove themselves from the game.
  3. If the problem persists after the above measures are taken, the referee may stop the game and the outcome of the game will be determined by the competition authority.

Please note, coaches, players and /or parents/spectators are highly discouraged from approaching or confronting referees at halftime or after the match for any reason other than retrieving player pass cards or saying ‘thank you’ and/or shaking hands.

Any concerns or feedback regarding referees must be submitted in writing to the Administrator of that Competition. Concerns related to referee performance or behavior will only be accepted from a Club Official (i.e. board member), Director of Coaching or the team’s coach. The claim must provide details specific to the complaint and cite examples where referee performance or behavior was inadequate or improper. The Competition Administrator will engage the appropriate parties in investigating and taking disciplinary action. (In cases of egregious referee abuse (e.g., physical confrontation), information will immediately be forwarded to the WYSA Executive Director for investigation and discipline decisions.)
