MIFC Needs Referees
Each fall weekend approximately 50 games are played on Mercer Island FC fields. Half the games are small-sided recreational games (U08 - U11) and the others are recreational and select team games (U12 - U18). Mercer Island directly provides all the referees for all the small-sided games and U12 recreational games on Mercer Island. The 50 games each weekend require 70 referee positions (60 center referees (CRs) and 10 assistant referees (ARs). We could really use your help. We especially need ADULT referees.
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).
Anyone 13+ years old can become a referee, by registering with www.wareferees.org, completing a set of online lessons teaching the “Laws of the Game” (~3-4 hours) and attending an in-person referee clinic (4 hours) https://www.wareferees.org/availableclinics.aspx
