It beats flipping burgers!
Once you hit 13 years old you are eligible to referee at FC Columbia County. Don't worry, we won't assign you any of the tougher games to start with, but we'd love to have you help out with our youngest age groups to get some experience.
All you have to do is get a uniform, and get certified. We'll take care of the rest.
To get certified, you need to pass a test that is put on by the Oregon Referee Committee. They have a bunch of classes that you can take to get certified. We'll assign you to games you can handle and support you all the way!
We pay you on the last day of September, and the last day of October for games you've done up to that point. Assignments are easy...we'll have our referee coordinator schedule you for games that work for you and you take it from there.
The rates are pretty decent, too:
U5 - U8: $20/game (1 referee per game, St Helens)
U9 - U11: $25/game (1 referee per game, Scappoose or St Helens)
U12 - U14: $tbd/game (League Assignor sets price)
Referees can only referee games where the players are two years (or more) younger than they are.
