Thank you to those working as a referee this spring in the Montana State Spring 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 referee will not 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.
If Montana Youth Soccer does not receive payment information from a new league referee, MYSA will pay the official by physical check by default using the address listed under the referee's GotSport 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 spring payday will be Friday, April 16th 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 GotSport.
Additionally, the Center Referee must:
enter the score, misconduct and supplemental of the game using the Game Report Form.
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 at 12pm on the Tuesday before each payday. This deadline will ensure timely referee payroll and processing of payments.
