BONUSES

BRYC has a Bonus Program to reward those officials who regularly work BRYC recreational soccer games or have taken the time to certifiy as senior referees. The program has three parts:

1.    Game Bonus #1:  Referees receive a $30.00 bonus for working a minimum of eleven recreational games in a season.

2.    Game Bonus #2:   Referees receive a $35.00 bonus for working a minimum of twenty-one recreational games in a season.

3.      Senior Referee Bonus: Referees certified at USSF Grade 7 or senior receive a $5.00 bonus per game.

The Referee Director may occasionally award other bonuses as appropriate.

ADMINISTRATIVE FEES

Officials are not assessed an administrative fee or fees for using The Arbiter.

 

 FINES

A referee who turns back an accepted assignment after 8:00 p.m. on the Wednesday preceding the game will incur a one game fine.   

A NO SHOW will result in a fine equal to two game fees for each game missed.

Arriving at a field less than 20 minutes prior to kickoff without prior permission from the Referee Director may result in a one-game fine (i.e., you work the game for free).  Arriving at a field after kickoff WILL result in a one-game fine.

Officiating a game in a league in which the referee, a son, daughter, brother, or sister is participating, without prior approval of the Referee Director, will result in a two-game fine and possible suspension.  There are no season-long waivers to this policy; the referee must make the assignor know of the conflict each time a game assignment is accepted.   This will not apply in cases of emergency when the scheduled official does not show and both coaches are aware of the substitute official’s relationship to a player, coach, or team.

Uniform violations or inappropriate conduct may result in fines or other disciplinary action at the discretion of the Referee Director.

 

OTHER PAY INFORMATION

Officials will be paid if they show up for a game that has not been cancelled and due to weather conditions the game is not played or play is stopped.  Officials will not be paid for subsequent canceled games they were scheduled to work on that field.

If a game does not begin due to failure of one or both teams to field the minimum required number of players, the referees will still be paid.

In other extenuating circumstances where a scheduled game is not played, the Referee Director will determine whether payment of referees is warranted.

Every attempt will be made to mail referee paychecks for the spring season by July 15.  Fall season paychecks will be distributed at the recertification clinics following the season.  Paychecks not picked up at the recertification clinics will be mailed following the final clinic.

 

ODSL GAME PAY

Referee compensation is based on the age group worked.  ODSL games do not count toward recreational game bonuses.  ODSL pays performance bonuses.   The Referee Director may award additional bonuses and assess fines as appropriate.  No administrative fees are assessed against ODSL pay.

The pay amounts for ODSL games are listed in the chart below.
