Referee Certification

Become a Soccer Official

Are you looking to earn some extra money? Do you love soccer and want to get paid to watch it? Become a soccer official! The new soccer official classes are being released. This year all in-person referee certifications are held remotely online. The minimum age to become a new soccer referee is 13 years old. The estimated total cost of the course and uniform is around $110-140. There is online coursework that must be done before the virtual class that takes about 12 hours. There are not many opportunities out there for youths to make at minimum of $14 per hour. During the last summer season, the Central Wisconsin Soccer League paid referees (Center and Assistant Referees) between $14 - $58 per game depending on age group and referee experience. The minimum payment for a U9/U10 game (which is the level a new referee would start at) is $20 for a center referee and $14 for assistant referees. That is at least $14 for refereeing a U9/U10 game of 50 minutes in length!
