Hudson & Western Wisconsin Referee Assignors


GW Assigning is actively recruiting for new referees to become certified and help fill the state shortage in 2023!

The time to act is NOW if you have interest in becoming a soccer referee.  Without the referee, there can be no game.  

We are looking for anyone with interest and is 13 years or older.  Work as little or as much as your schedule allows, be your own boss!  No soccer experience needed.  Many opportunities exist due to the ref shortage.  A U9/10 game is 50 minutes and pays $30, with older games going up from there!

New referees complete online work at their own pace, but must attend a 4 hour in person clinic after the online work is completed.  HSA/WW will host an in-person clinic on April 15th from 8am to Noon at the Hudson High School Fishbowl.  Additional MNSRC clinics are hosted throughout the cities and can be attended if unable to make the Hudson hosted clinic.
