The CYC thanks all of its officials for their effort to help our leagues and games run smoothly. We thank you for all your help, and hope that you will continue to help everyone in the CYC to have fun, play hard, and play fair.

Memo to Sports Officials

Referee Clip ArtBecause CYC Sports Officials are considered Independent Contractors, they must obtain the following forms, complete them in full, and file them with the CYC Sports Officials Association prior to or as soon as possible into the season in which they work:

  1. An official Registration Form
  2. A Federal Form W-9

These forms are to be completed in full by the sports official and sent to:

CYC Sports Officials Association
20 Archbishop May Dr.
St. Louis, MO 63119

The original forms will be kept in the offices of the CYC Sports Officials Association and copies should be provided by the official to any parish athletic association or District with whom he/she contracts to work.

Every sports official over the age of 18 and desiring to work in leagues or playoffs in which children under the age of 18 are participating, must be in compliance with the Archdiocesan mandate for Protecting God's Children. That is, each official must:

  1. Attend a Protecting God's Children Workshop.
  2. Have had a Missouri criminal background check within the previous two years.
  3. Read and sign off on the Archdiocesan Code of Ethical Conduct.

Catholic officials can get information regarding these requirements from their pastor or parish child safety coordinator. Non-Catholic officials can get information regarding these requirements from their District or from the CYC Office.
