Hiring Fall and 2023 Referees

By Hudson Soccer, 07/17/22, 7:45PM CDT




Soccer Community,

We are actively recruiting for new referees to become certified and help fill the state shortage!  Certify for the fall and your certification will carry over for ALL of 2023!

The time to act is NOW if you have interest in becoming a soccer referee.  Without the referee there can be no game.  You are a critical part of the game.

We are looking for anyone with interest in working this upcoming fall and beyond with youth soccer and is age 13 years and older.  You work as little or as much as your schedule allows.  You are your own boss!  Last year we were short refs every day of the season, so there are so many opportunities.   Work with 9 and 10 year old's and earn $30 for a 50 minute game it goes up from there!!!

This year, referees complete online work at their own pace, but must attend a 4 hour in person clinic on August 6th from 8am to Noon at the Hudson High School.  Please visit: and click on the left side “NEW REFEREE”.
