Referee Program

Program Overview

Mavericks Soccer Club believes that refereeing is a critical component of youth soccer development, both for young players and their parents.  Each season, Mavericks-affiliated referees assist our soccer community with quality officiating in more than one hundred games at age levels ranging from U9 to U19.

To make this happen, Mavericks provides support in several areas:

  • Advice on referee training classes and certification
  • Mentoring for new referees of all ages
  • Helping Mavericks teams meet their league requirements
  • Offering bonus incentives to young refs

If you are interested in refereeing for Mavericks, or have questions about certification classes, referee pay, or your team’s refereeing requirements, please contact Mavericks Soccer Club Referee Cordinator Dan Bristol - Click Here
