Rosters & ID Cards are to be checked by the COACH or MANAGER of each team to verify that their opponents paperwork has been Certified & Stamped by a CMSA Registrar for league play. It is NOT the responsiblty of the Officials. The League Roster needs to have the CMSA League Sticker, Expiration Date & Stamped by a CMSA Registrar. All rosters & cards will be Laminated by the CMSA Registrars. If the roster is not complete than the game will be played and reported as a League Scrimmage Game. The Referees only need to oversee the Roster & ID Check when the teams are checking the paperwork. Scrimmage games will be officiated by the Referees.
