An opportunity from Highline soccer:
We have a serious shortage of referees this season, so we want to build our referee pool to help out.
The way this works is that once you become a certified referee, you can self-assign to games that work with your schedule. This is a great job for young and old alike – you can make $20 to center a U8 game, all the way up to $62 for a U19 game, with options to be an AR (sideline ref) for between $17 and $38 per game. You can do multiple games a day, so you can pay off the clinic fee pretty quickly. And if you ref 10 games for HSA Select, you can get reimbursed for the clinic.
You can find clinics at the WA State Referee Clinics site, and choose the first option in the drop down (Entry). The closest clinics are down at the Tukwila Community Center from 9am-12:30pm on 11/13 and 12/4.
However, there is a new process to register for the clinics so please log onto the WASRC website above and click on ‘How to Become a Referee’ to the right and follow the instructions.
Once you register and pay, you must complete all 23 referee modules. Once you complete the modules, then you choose a clinic to attend. You cannot choose a clinic to attend until after you register and complete the modules.
Please help out by becoming a referee – it’s a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday, being around the beautiful game!
