Methods of Payment

There are a few ways referees are paid (cash on field, electronically, Arbiter, etc..). Generally the referees are paid cash on field by either one or both of the teams playing in your specific game. If the game is not paid on field then the teams can either pay you electronically or the SDCSRA association can also pay you through Arbiter. A matrix for the pay amounts should be on the top of the game report given to you at game time usually by the home team.

Majority of the games will be Presidio/SDDA or SCDSL leagues paid cash on field. PQ Rec games are paid via ArbiterPay, NOT CASH on field. You must sign up and create an account with Arbiter in order for you to get assigned games as well as paid through Arbiter. See instructions to register for Arbiter in next section. Referee fees chart links are below.

We use Arbiter Sports to assign games and Arbiter Pay as the method of payment for most games, although many summer tournaments simply pay cash on site. Below is a link to set up your own Arbiter account and start receiving RefPay through our SDCSRA association. Arbiter is also how we find and locate the fields we assign you to each weekend. You can find a list of school & field locations once you have your account set up. Once you have an account as well as payment method ready, your Arbiter account must also be accepted & approved by SDCSRA and then click the READY to be assigned tic box for you to be available to be assigned games!
