Memo to Sports Officials

All officials (on the field or at the scorer's table) that are paid to officiate for the CYC in all sports need to register with the CYC Sports Officials Association (CYC-SOA).  All paid CYC Sports Officials are considered Independent Contractors, and as such must join the CYC-SOA. In order to join the CYC-SOA officials must:

  1. Register each year with the CYC-SOA - Registration for the 2018-19 season is now open.  The cost is $5.00 per official for the whole year no matter if you officiate/scorekeep 1 or 1,000 games.

    3. Have had a Missouri Criminal Background Check within the previous two years.  Again, Officials 18                 and under and have not graduated from high school are not required to have this check.
