Texas Rush Soccer Club would like to strongly encourage our Adult membership to become a Referee. Depending on the age group of the assigned game a Center Referee can make $14-$45 and Assistant Referees (AR) are paid $20-$25 per game. Upon request, youth referees (11 and older) may be assigned to work with adult referees as ARs in the beginning so they get some comfort with refereeing before being assigned as a Center Referee for younger games. Signing up for weekend games is very flexible via email to the Referee assignor.
For any concerns or issues related to referees, please direct your initial inquiry to your coach who is aware of the proper procedures for giving formal feedback to the appropriate league of play and its referee assignor. The Soccer Code of Conduct requires all participants (players, coaches, trainers, parents, spectators to the fields) to respect the officials and refrain from any derogatory or verbally abusive comments either before, during or after a game. Violation of this Code of Conduct will be dealt with by Texas Rush and/or the applicable play association affected by this situation. Additionally referee abuse issues and ongoing cases of referee abuse are handled directly by the State Association - STYSA - and can result in immediate suspension from participation in any activities.
