Referee Pay Scale

REFEREE PAY RATES

  • Referees are paid the following per-game rates for matches hosted and assigned by SYA Soccer.
  • Payment is issued via check at the end of each season (e.g., in June following the Spring season, and in November/December following the Fall season).
  • Referees who are paid $600 or more by SYA Soccer in a calendar year will receive an IRS 1099 tax form from SYA to file with their annual tax return.
  • Referees who officiate a large number of recreational and/or Suburban Friendship League (SFL) games, either per day or during a season, are awarded bonuses.
  • Referees who fill in for another referee at the last minute, e.g., for an injured referee, no-shows, car troubles, or other unforeseen circumstances, are awarded an emergency bonus.
  • Referee mentors that are assigned by SYA Soccer are paid for their services.
