Why We Do It
Make a difference in your community
Officiating refers to the process of ensuring that the game is played according to the rules and regulations. This is done by a team of referees who oversee every aspect of the game, from the start of the first play to the final whistle. Our primary responsibility is to make sure that each team plays fairly and to ensure the safety of all players on the field.
No experience necessary. Our trainers will get you ready.
Our officials come from the community and represent: educators, law enforcement, students, electricians, small business owners, contractors, custodians, chaplains, bankers, truck drivers, engineers, retirees, and more.
Game Fees vary from $65-90 per game. Depending on availability, our officials work 10-70 games each season.
Set your own availability. Work games according to your schedule.
OSAA registration of ~$85, and a small percentage of each paycheck go to pay our commissioner and operating expenses.
No beginning experience necessary. Our training committee provides a complete classroom and on-field program.
New officials could work games played Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri with kickoffs between 4-7pm. Youth games on Sat.
Becoming an excellent official requires time and dedication. The level of success you attain is determined by the work you put in.

There’s something for everyone.
No matter what sport or level we work, we are bonded. We are drawn together by a passion for officiating those outside the industry can’t understand. We make the calls and put up with the jeers because we love officiating. The reasons for our joy when we step on the field are vast and every reason is forged in the fire of our individual experiences.
