Youth Football Ref

Want to be a Youth Football Referee?

At M2FFL, we offer young men and women the chance to become youth football referees for our flag football games. Officiating football games can instill a sense of pride, self-respect, and most importantly, confidence in an individual.

To get started, M2FFL will provide each referee with a shirt, flag, whistle, and initial instruction at our mandatory meeting (TBD). However, it is the responsibility of each individual to thoroughly understand the rules of the game and work on improving their skills.

We are currently seeking 8th through Senior year high school students with prior or current football experience to serve as referees for our Flag games. Payment is a flat rate of $25 per game, regardless of experience level or tenure. Each game will have 2 referees assigned through RefTown.

Meetings & Expectations.

If you're an 8th-12th grader with an interest in officiating M2FFL games, there's a mandatory pre-season Youth Referee meeting you must attend. Location and time TBD

At this meeting, we'll guide you through the USA Football Flag Rules and some of our local rule modifications. We'll also cover some IHSA rules, common calls, and have a lively Q&A session to provide guidance. Additionally, we'll provide you with your whistle and shirt, and detailed instructions on how to use RefTown.

RefTown is the platform where games are scheduled for officials, and it's essential for each referee to confirm games, manage availability, and get paid.

The Ref Manual contains the pay schedule and general information that you need to know. Please be aware that game assignments for each youth referee are at the Director's sole discretion, usually based on experience and performance. No premium is paid for wearing a "white hat."

Not understanding and following the rules can result in no future game assignments, and note cards will be available in the Fall to help remember common rules and infractions.

We'll have a mid-season Youth Referee meeting to include the distribution of your first paycheck, program feedback, and another Q&A session. Your second and final paycheck will be provided when you return your shirt and flag (you get to keep your hat and whistle) at the end of the season.
