ONLINE Referee Registration I


Following is the proposed fee schedule for referees and linesmen.


Age      Center    Asst. Referee      Comp. Center  Comp. A/R


U-8       $15.00    N/A                  30.00          N/A

U-10      $15.00    N/A                  30.00         20.00

U-12      $15.00   $15.00 X 2            35.00         25.00

U-14      $15.00   $15.00 X 2            40.00         30.00 

U-16      $15.00   $15.00 X 2            45.00         35.00

 U-19      $15.00   $15.00 X 2             N/A           N/A


     In addition to the above fee schedule, a $2.00 per game premium will be paid to either a center ref or linesman with two to four years experience (recreational league games only).

A $3.00 per game premium will be added to either a center ref or linesman with five to 9 years experience (Recreational league games only).

A $5.00 per game premium will be added to either a center ref or lineman with 10 plus years experience (Recreational league games only). 


The objective is to retain referees with experience. I believe this will be an incentive, especially to the younger refs, to stay in the program.


     In an effort to improve reliability, the following system of discipline will be implemented by the referee association.  Any referee who fails to show for a game will be fined the amount he or she would have been paid for that game.  The fine will be deducted from pending or future earnings as a referee.



We are proud and happy to tell you that US Soccer Federation has also launched a "Campaign" to end bad behavior on and off the field.  After 6 months of promoting the Respect program through our Referee Connection website and after lauching the Soccer with Respect Fan Club we can see now the results.  It's great to see the US Soccer taking the lead in this effort to make the game more enjoable.  Click here to link to the Facebook page.
