CYA Basketball trains and hires referees to officiate games for second through sixth grades.  Volunteers must be at least 14-years-old and attend CYA's training sessions.  Training sessions will be held in late October/early November.  

Referee starting pay is $20 per game, whistles and referee shirts are provided. 

We are also looking for experienced referees to help with our mentoring program.  Mentors will be paid their referee rate for the hours they are on the court and will be heavily relied on at the beginning of the season.  Please email with the subject line "Mentor" after you register.  

In order to officiate for the CYA basketball program you must be at least 14 years of age and must attend the required training sessions. 

NOTE: Games for grades 7-12 (Boys and Girls) are officiated by semi-professional referees provided by Cardinal Basketball Officials Association.
