HOW DO I GET PAID FOR GAMES?
Each league, tournament or friendly match will likely have a different method of paying you for your services. It's important to stay updated and ask about the payment method before working the game. For some games you'll be handed cash on the field, others a check may be mailed to you at the end of the tournament or the league may send you payment via direct deposit. In any case, it's the referee's responsibility to know what needs to be done to get paid according to the policies in place. If you're not sure what to do to get paid, contact your local assignor or the tournament assignor and ask.
Montana youth soccer association
Most games in Montana are considered "League" games and are ran by Montana Youth Soccer Association (MYSA).
Visit the MYSA Referee pages on their website for additional payment information. MYSA issues pay every 2 weeks via direct deposit or check for games completed and a full game report submitted by the center referee. Keep track of your game pay and if it looks short, likely that game report hasn't been submitted and it will be included in the next round of payments. If you already have submitted paperwork for past seasons the same payment method and accounts will be used. You must fill out new paperwork if you need to make a change. If not paperwork is on file the address located in GotSport will be used to mail a check.
Current game fees can be found in the MYSA Policy Manual.
