If you have ever considered giving back to the game of soccer, becoming an adult referee is an excellent way to do it!
As with all sports, ECYSA and by extension NRYS has seen a major drop in the number of adult referees for our travel games in the years following the Covid-19 pandemic. On any given weekend, numerous games are left without a qualified referee to make the game fun, safe, and fair.
To help encourage more referees, NRYS will reimburse all required fees to become a badged/credentialed referee.
Not only is this an excellent way to give back to the game, referees are paid between $35-70 per game (depending on game grade level). While picking up just a single game per weekend will help, there is also a bonus of $250 if you work 24 or more assignments per season.
