Homer Soccer Club does not require referees to be certified, so becoming a referee is an easy way to make money and get some exercise at the same time. All ages and experience levels are welcome, as we assign games according to your comfort level.
All that is required to referee is attendance at a pre-season referee overview meeting; fall season dates will be announced in August.
First time referees are also eligible for up to $50 in reimbursement for uniform costs. In general, we recommend a 10 piece (Economy USSF shirt, Economy USSF shorts, Economy USSF socks, red & yellow card set, data wallet, scorepad, velcro disk for badge, whistle, lanyard, and flag set) soccer referee starter kit. Uniforms can be purchased anywhere but please see the links below for a few ideas.
For more information on becoming a referee, please reach out to Jennifer Galka at 309-838-5350
