Juventus Referee Assignment

PensraJuventus and many area clubs use the PENSRA referee assignment system for both league games & tournaments.  Register & request games there.

PENSRA is a powerful and easy to use system that provides for the ability to SELF-ASSIGN your matches for some matches.  Juventus offers thousands of matches each year and referees are expected to be independent and highly reliable.  No show, no call situations are dealt with harsh consequences.

To get games, be sure to update your profile with correct and accurate e-mail address, then, mark your profile with the Juventus check-box.  This way you will get my messages.  Make sure your rating is up to date and accurate and contact me at non-event times to request a rating change.  Leverage self assign as often as you possibly can.  Read the PENSRA failure codes to determine why you can’t self assign.

Games are released for self assign at different times for leagues than for tournaments.

While I appreciate all officials specific and unique needs and circumstances, please resist the temptation to contact me until after you have consumed all the terrific resources on this page, in PENSRA’s FAQs and on
