Thank you to those working as a referee this fall in the Montana State Fall League and/or the Northwest League! Montana Youth Soccer is assigning all games through designated State Assignors. These Assignors will assign all league games and should be your point-of-contact if you want to work, whether at your home club fields or while traveling the state.
This method of assigning means referees will not receive cash on-site, but instead that they will be paid bi-weekly either through direct deposit or physical check based on their preference. Note, direct deposit will be the faster method to receive funds. Funds through physical check will arrive through the mail and arrival date will depend on the mail delivery service.
If the referee’s preference is to be paid by Direct Deposit they must submit:
If the referee’s preference is to be paid by physical check, they must submit:
Instructions for how to complete and submit these documents are found on both Authorization Forms. Be sure to submit both your W-9 Form and your Authorization Form at the same time. SUBMISSIONS RECEIVED BY EMAIL WILL BE DELETED IMMEDIATELY AND WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
Returning referees with Direct Deposit information on file will receive payment from Montana Youth Soccer by Direct Deposit unless new payment information is submitted to MYSA.
If Montana Youth Soccer does not receive payment information from a new league referee, MYSA will pay the official through physical check by default using the address listed under the referee's GotSoccer account. Should such a referee exceed $600 over the course of a calendar year, that individual will be required to submit a W-9 Form to MYSA for tax purposes.
The first fall payday will be Friday, September 18th and will continue on a bi-weekly basis through the season. To qualify for and receive payment for each game, a referee crew must be assigned to the game in GotSoccer.
Additionally, the Center Referee must:
- enter the score of the game in GotSoccer,
- enter all misconduct and injuries in GotSoccer and
- complete a Supplemental Report for the game and save it in GotSoccer (whether any injuries and/or misconduct occurred or not).
These above duties are required responsibilities of all referees. Games in which any of these duties have not been performed will be designated as ‘Incomplete’. No member on the referee crew will be paid for an Incomplete game. Games in which all of the above duties have been performed will be designated as ‘Complete’. MYSA will process payment for all Complete games in GotSoccer at 12pm on the Tuesday before each payday. This deadline will ensure timely referee payroll and processing of payments.
