Volunteer house referees

General Information

CYA uses volunteer referees to officiate games in the Spring House programs for Grades 4-8 for. Volunteers can be either adults or youth aged 13 and above. A training program is offered in the Fall to teach newcomers the necessary skills to officiate and to provide a refresher to veteran officials. If there is sufficient interest and additional refs are needed, then an additional Spring training program will be offered. All house refs must have been certified through these training classes.
Volunteer referees are paid between $10-$20 per game, depending upon experience and the age level of those playing in the game. Referees are also compensated for their attendance at the training sessions and for mentoring other officials.  Game cards can be downloaded from this web page by clicking on the CYA House Ref game card link on the left.
To register as a referee, click on the Volunteer Only link on left side of the main CYA web page or the Volunteer to ref link on the left side of this page. For more information on CYA's House Basketball referee program, contact Monica Despins at
NOTE: Games for grades 9-12 are officiated by referees provided by the Cardinal Basktball Officiating Association.
