Frequently Asked Questions

How do referees get paid?

As a referee you will be getting paid per game and the price depends on the age and level you referee. Recreational youth game pay starts at $20.00. Higher level games like a U17-U19 Rangers or North County Alliance match is $65.00 for the center referee and $47.00 for assistant referees. All the payments will be electronic, there will be no checks issued.

Can we referee in the summer?

Yes! There are always summer tournaments that will be played that we need referees for. Please send us an email if you would like more information.

What does the time commitment look like?

One of the nice things about being a referee is you get to determine your weekend schedule. You get to pick your own game times and for the most part how many games you would like to work in a day.

What time of the year will newer referees be most busy?

If you are just starting out, we will have you working the recreational games that take place in the Fall and in the Spring. There will be 8 weekends per season.
