MIFC Referee Annoucement

Referee Training Information

As every year, we will need a lot of referees for our MIFC and EYSA games, and we're training teenagers (13+) and adults in our community to become a referee this summer.

Please join us! Referees get paid $20-$45 per youth games, and that's a fantastic first job for teenagers (flexible too, you pick your games).

Our EYSA association also pays a $100+ bonus for referees doing 10+ games with us ($10 extra per game, so teenagers can make $30 for <1h, and pile a few of those on every week-end in the Fall!)

 Anyone 13+ years old can become a referee, by registering with, completing a set of online lessons teaching the “Laws of the Game” (~3-4 hours) and attending an in-person referee clinic (4 hours, list included below).

 EYSA sponsors these clinics in our neighborhoods periodically so watch for announcements or please email the referee coordinator at [email protected]

Other in-person clinics can be found on on:

*And as if this wasn't a great deal already, EYSA will also reimburse the FULL cost of training and certification (~$85) for the first 10 players or family members of an EYSA club who sign-up for this promotion, and then complete at least 5 games for us...

After becoming a certified referee with the state, you can register with to join our pool of referees for our EYSA games.

Join us, or talk to your teenager about this!
