As we cope with the current situation GSOA has you and your student athletes in our thoughts. We all hope the the spring season will resume. We know how important this season is to your players especially your seniors.
Once we get an indication from GHSA that the season will resume, I will send instructions and guidelines out to the schools to allow us to prioritize the games that need to be played.
GSOA would like to ask the schools that have the capability to process a mid-season invoice for soccer officials it would be greatly appreciated. We have officials who are out work right now and receiving payment for the games they have officiated since the start of the season in January would be greatly appreciated. GSOA is a non-profit organization that pays out 100% of the money it collects, we have no "rainy day" fund.
To retrieve your invoice just login to your school's account on the GSOA website (www.gsoa.net), click on Season Bill (Download Invoice). This invoice is for only the games that have been played to the point the season was shutdown. Send payment to:
GEORGIA SOCCER OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION
PO Box 20462 Atlanta, GA 30325
I hope this message finds you and your family doing well. I have nothing to update you on the status of the Spring High School Soccer season. GHSA has not made an indication of resuming or cancelling the rest of the season.
I sent a request out to the schools to see if they can pay for their invoices to this point of the season. I am hoping to collect enough funds so that we can start to pay referees that are financially impacted by the corona virus. I am hoping to collect enough funds to pay 25% of the referees.
If you are need of payment please send me an email, I cannot not make any promises, we will do the best that we can.
Please be safe.
