Referee development is something Sporting Lee’s Summit continues to invest in by having mentors observe and/or referee alongside less experienced referees. To aid in monitoring referee performance and developing quality referees, Sporting Lee’s Summit is providing an online feedback form. Please use the form constructively. The form is meant to be used by coaches to provide feedback on a specific game.

Coaches for 1st Grade Divisions and up are required to submit a game card at the start of each game listing the players in number order. The game card must include the division, date, game time, and coaches names.

Prior to coaching the following form needs to be completed. This check will satisfy requirements for all youth organizations within Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation for one year. If you have already performed a background check through First Check Applicant Screening, please email  Below is the link to complete the background check application as well as additional helpful information.
