Referees will be paid $12 per game. Referees will be paid one check at the end of the Mite Season about one week after the Jamboree.
The first 8 new players who contact the Referee Coordinator will be added to the list with the returning Referee's for this season. After that players will be placed on a waiting list in the order they contact the Referee Coordinator.

After passing the online test you will recieve an email from USA Hockey that confirms you have passed the test, you must forward this email to the Referee Coordinator, this secures your spot on the list of Referees.
Anyone on the waiting list can attend a Clinic and complete the requirements to become a Referee, but will not be secured a spot on the list of Referees unless a returning or new Referee does not complete all of the requirements.
