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.
