Sandpoint Soccer Association

Hello all,

With the tournament a couple weeks away, Sept 7-9, I need to get a head count who is up for reffing this year.  As you all know refs are one of, if not the biggest part of a soccer tournament.  I would love to have each and everyone ref over the weekend.  A few changes:

1. If you are traveling further than Spokane, our club would like to help with hotel costs.  Depending on how many request assistance is how much we can pay per person.  If there is a large group requesting assistance, we may ask for refs to combine rooms.  Please let me know if you would need this.  If I don't get many requests from further refs outside of Spokane, our club may assist with hotel cost for refs from Spokane area.

2.  I have created a new email address for POC specifically.  It is refpendoreillecup@gmail.com
Please email that address with your availability over the whole weekend.  I will assign off your requests.

I need to know
A. Center or AR at what age groups
B. Are you Certified
C. How many games you would like to ref each day
D. Any times that you are not Available

3. There is a new pay structure this year.  I will send that out to those that email me back on the new account.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions....

Referee Certification Clinic

August 19, 2018.  8:00 – 5:00 

Sandpoint High School classroom.  Bring a lunch.



August 19, 2018

SHS - Room W10 - Conor Baranski's classroom

8AM-5PM   Working lunch.


Participants must complete the on-line modules PRIOR to the clinic


For further information and additional requirements to register and get Arbiter access.  


The cost will be $70 but after you referee a combination of either Rec League or Strikers games you will receive a bonus on your end of the season check for $70.  The only up-front cost would be a referee jersey that you can find online for under $20 or a full kit for about $60.  This again could easily be made up with Rec League or Strikers games.


Strikers pays $20 per game for certified referees for Rec League games - that is more than $20 per hour.  Strikers games pay on a tier and go up in payment based on Center Ref assignments and older age groups.


We hope to reach 12 or more registrations for this clinic, so that we can hold it.    This will also help us keep home games this season.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.  Thank you for your time.
