Annual fees to continue the Referee Certificate thereafter are payable by the Club Member.
CSC Intramural Referees- Club members that become certified referees are eligible to referee Club intramural matches. The Chief of Referees along with input from the Vice President will coordinate and determine the schedule for the Club.
Expectations of Referees- The role of the referee is to remain in good standing with the USSF State Referee Certificate and follow the rules and regulations of that governing body. The referee must annually re-register and take follow up classes to keep up with the current rules.

Behavior/Sportsmanship- The referee serves at the discretion of the Soccer Club Board of Directors. He/She should act as a role model for the Club and its Members.
Disciplinary action- The club officers can at any time review any issue concerning a referee to determine whether they should remain in the position.

Dismissal Procedures- upon being notified of a possible referee issue, the Chief of Referees will notify the referee in question and document the discussion. The referee will then be given the opportunity to respond in writing to the Chief of Referees. If necessary, the Chief of Referees will convene a review committee consisting of at least 3 Board Members who will collect information on the referee issue and make a recommendation to the club officers. The club officers shall decide at this time whether the referee shall continue through the remainder of the season or be removed immediately.
