Winter Program 2008-09

CYA Basketball uses volunteer referees to officiate games in the Winter program for Grades 1-8. Volunteers can be either adults or youth aged 13 and above.  
A training program is offered to teach newcomers the necessary skills to officiate and to provide a refresher to veteran officials. All house refs must be certified through these training classes. The time and place of this training session (not to be held before October) will be announced on this web page.
Volunteer referees are paid between $10-$20 per game, depending upon experience and the age level of those playing in the game. Referees are also compensated for their attendance at the training sessions and for mentoring other officials. 
If you are a trained referee and want to volunteer for the Winter season, contact the Referee Coordinator, Monica Despins, at We are planning a refresher training for existing refs so make sure that you find out when that is to be held.
If you not previously been trained, please contact Monica Despins to express your interest in becoming a new CYA referee and to be put on the mailing list so that you will be notified when our training sessions are held.
NOTE: Games for grades 9-12 are officiated by referees provided by the Cardinal Basktball Officiating Association.
