Who can be a referee?
What should I do about uniforms and equipment?
Referees provide their own uniform, stopwatch, whistle, and caution cards. All of these items are available at local sporting goods stores. We wear an all black uniform - black shoes, socks, shorts and jersey (with white pin stripes).
When does the league start and how will I be scheduled?
Returning referees will be invited to participate in Ascension's annual pre-season tournament.
New and Training League referees will start with league play beginning the first weekend in September, and running through mid-November. We only officiate Ascension home games which will all be scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. These games will be at CVAC.
How the schedule works:
Referees in good standing from last season who worked a minimum of one game per weekend (or 10 games total) will be allowed to self-schedule their games. Others will be manually scheduled as substitutes or as games come available. We will provide scheduling infomation for new training league officials at the pre-season meeting.
How much do referees make?
What training is required?
Training League (Pre-K, Kindergarten & 1st Grade )
TRAINING LEAGUE REFEREES DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND DISTRICT TRAINING. New 7th & 8th graders looking to learn to officiate are placed in our Training League and are to attend a separate on-field workshop in place of the nine-hour district classroom session and exam.
Trophy League (2nd Grade – High School)
All returning Trophy League officials are required to annually re-take the district exam prior to the start of the regular season and pass with a score of 70% or better. 2016 Testing dates and locations are scheduled throughout the district as follows (you may attend any one):
