CYA Basketball uses volunteer referees to officiate games in the Winter program for Grades 2-8 and in the Spring program for Grades 4-8. Volunteers can be either adults or youth aged 13 and above. Winter games begin in early December and Spring games at the beginning of April.
Volunteer 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 13 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 SESSIONS. THE FIRST SESSION WAS HELD ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 29th @ ROCKY RUN MIDDLE SCHOOL. THE SECOND SESSION WILL BE HELD ON NOVEMBER 12 FROM 1:00 – 2:00.
