Scheduling & Pay

Referee Pay

With the exception of exhibition games, referees assigned through the club are paid on a monthly basis at the Referee meeting.

Referee pay for exhibition matches is the responsibility of the home team. Referees are customarily paid in cash prior to the start of the match.

Referees will be expected to submit a “referee game tracking” form for each game refereed or A/R following each game day.  This information will be used by the Club scheduler to process the monthly payroll. Please note: you will not be paid if you do not submit your games.

Payroll Form has been removed as of June 24, 2018

Be Early

When you are scheduled to officiate a match, the time you are given is the kick-off time. In all cases, it is your responsibility to be present and fully ready before this time to ensure the game is able to start on time.


All Referee and AR assignments, including for exhibition matches, require full and correct referee uniform. Layers such as UnderArmour™ etc., may be worn if desired for colder weather conditions but track pants, jackets, sunglasses and hats are not considered appropriate. It is recommended to bring an alternate colour jersey or pinny in case of a colour conflict with either team.

Referee Assignments

Regular Season and Cup Play

Referee assignments will be made by the club scheduler, Megan Walker. Please contact Megan by Monday with your availability information for the following weekend, to ensure you are given scheduling priority.

Scheduling priority will also be given to those who demonstrate their ongoing commitment to the Pursuit of Excellence by regularly attending the monthly referee development meetings and having an independent assessment at least annually.

Assistant Referees

 Assistant referees are scheduled for the following matches:

  • League matches for U16 – U18 divisions.
  • Cup matches for U13 – U18 divisions.
  • Selected tournament matches.
  • MSL division (club policy, Youth Referee minimum qualification required).

Decisions During Cup Play

During cup play, the rules for deciding the outcome in case of a tied score at the end of regulation time will vary depending on a number of factors. Always confirm with both teams before the start of the match and ensure your schedule can accommodate the possibility of extra time, before accepting any cup assignments.
