Juventus and many area clubs use the PENSRA referee assignment system for both league games & tournaments. Register & request games through this system.
PENSRA is a powerful and easy to use system that provides for the ability to SELF-ASSIGN your matches for matches you are rated for. You can manually request others. Juventus offers thousands of assignments each year and referees are expected to be independent and highly reliable. No show, no call situations are dealt with harsh consequences.
Beginning February, 2018, Juventus, like many Clubs in the area have and others that plan to, moved to electronic payments for league and tournament assignments. Currently, Juventus uses PayPal to remit payment. You will need to update your Pensra account with a valid PayPal address in order for the money to be sent to you. You will also need to provide a valid Tax ID number in Pensra. There are currently no fees to set-up a PayPal account or to receive the payment.
Juventus pays referees twice monthly, first for the 1st-15th and second for the 16th-last day of the month. The Juventus treasurer will be authorized to make payments within a couple of days of the payroll period, assuming all referees have submitted their match reports. The payments are virtually instant, once processed.
To get games, be sure to keep your profile updated with a correct and accurate e-mail address, then, mark your profile with the Juventus ‘availability’ 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.
Darrell’s Top 10 Advisories…
1.) Do no dump assignments back in my lap; when you’re contacting me because you cannot make a match, be responsible and have a back-up identified – I need to be in the loop and make adjustments in Pensra
2.) While the CR typically provides flags, all officials should have all equipment necessary to carry out the match, including ARs*!
3.) Arrival time is a MINIMUM of 15 minutes prior to kick-off, you need this time for a pre-game conference, check-in and field inspection
4.) Red cards must be reported promptly, each league has it’s own requirements – do NOT delay!
5.) Referees who are awarded matches with conditions to complete training, etc. MUST follow-through and fulfill the conditions before working the match!
6.) There are multiple ways to reach me; use Pensra SiteMail for issues which are not time sensitive, e-mail for important issues, SMS messaging for urgent issues and CALL ME if something critical comes up.
7.) Be responsive. If you don’t reply to me, I will stop using you for assignments.
8.) Do not have others represent you – all officials must be responsible and keep in touch with me, just like a real job!
9.) Do NOT sit on unaccepted assignments, accept them promptly!
10.) SHOW-UP for your assignments – no show/no call situations will be treated harshly.
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 CNRA.net.
