Referees are being sought to officiate CYA house basketball games (grades 2-8) during the CYA Winter season. Anyone interested in officiating this Winter for CYA Basketball must attend either one (and only one) of the two organizational meetings that will be held. Both meetings will have the same agenda. Anyone who does not attend one on these meetings might not be put on the eligible referee list.
The organizational meetings will be held at Rocky Run Middle School on Saturday, October 29th from 10am to 12 noon and on Wednesday, November 2nd at Rachel Carson Middle School from 7 pm to 9 pm. The meetings will begin promptly at 10:30am (Rocky Run) and 7:30 pm (Carson) respectively, so it is extremely important to arrive on time. Those who arrive after the start of the meetings might not be put on the eligible referee list. Participants must bring your social security number in order to be registered as a referee (this is required by the IRS when CYA issues payment). Attendees should bring a pen and paper to record important information during this meeting.
After CYA Basketball has determined the number of referees that have attended these meetings, we will conduct additional training for all referees. New referees will be required to attend a training session on the basics of being a referee, and all referees will be required to attend a training session to discuss the specific rules of the age group to which they will be assigned to referee.
All referees will receive $10.00 for attending this meeting provided that they officiate at least two games during the Winter season. This payment will be issued once the referee has submitted a game card showing that they officiated at least two games.
