wave New Referee Clinics:

Become a Soccer Referee

Referees make between $35.00 to $83.50 as a Referee and $23.00 to $55.50 as an Assistant Referee. Kids have been able to easily make between $3,500 - $5,500 a year.

Refereeing is a great way for kids and adults to make money and there are games available to officiate year around. Referees select the matches they can officiate from website scheduling systems and set their own work schedule. By becoming a referee now, referees will be able to officiate summer tournaments and be ready for the fall league.
