CYA Basketball uses CYA trained referees to officiate games in the Winter program for Grades 2-8 and in the Spring program for Grades 3-8. Referees can be either adults or youth aged 15 and above. Winter games begin in early December and Spring games at the beginning of April.
CYA trained referees are paid between $10-$25 per game, depending upon experience and the age level of those playing in the game. Whistles and uniform shirts will be provided. Experienced officials are also needed for our mentoring program and will be paid to work with our newer referees at the start of the season.
In order to officiate for the CYA basketball program you must be at least 15 years of age and must attend the required training sessions.
NEW OFFICIALS AND OFFICIALS FROM 2ND AND 3RD GRADE LAST SEASON NEED TO ATTEND 2 TRAINING SESSIONS.
ALL RETURNING REFEREES, GRADES 4TH AND UP, MUST ATTEND A REFRESHER SESSION.
Referee Training courses are offered each fall and possibly in the spring.
If you have any questions please contact the Referee Coordinator, Monica Despins, at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Games for grades 9-12 (Boys and Girls) are officiated by referees provided by the Cardinal Basketball Officiating Association.
