CYA Basketball uses volunteer referees to officiate games in the Winter House program for Grades 1-8. Volunteers can be either adults or youth aged 13 and above. A training program will be offered in the Fall to teach newcomers the necessary skills to officiate and to provide a refresher to veteran officials. All house refs must be certified through these training classes. The time and place of this training session will be announced on this web page.
Volunteer referees are paid between $10-$20 per game, depending upon experience and the age level of those playing in the game. Referees are also compensated for their attendance at the training sessions and for mentoring other officials.
You can volunteer to become a referee beginning in mid-September 2006 once registration for Basketball begins. To register online as a referee, click on the Volunteer link in the top left corner of the main CYA web page and contact the Referee Coordinator, Monica Despins, at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Games for grades 9-12 are officiated by referees provided by the Cardinal Basktball Officiating Association.
