Creating a Referee Account

You've completed your referee course and now you are eager to referee for the BAYS League.  Welcome! These instructions should help you create a new referee account.

1. Contact your Town Referee Assignor

Organizational MembersIf you are going to be a regular referee, you should reach out to your home town Referee Assignor. This individual is in charge of referee placement for games, and it is always a good idea to have a solid relationship with this important home town official. You can find your Referee Assignor by going to the Town Officials page, select your desired town, and look under the Organization Members link.



2. Complete the Online Referee Application

Assumption - You do not have a current Coach or Town Official Account. If you do, please recover the username and password here 

To create a Referee Account, you need to complete the application found here: Referee Application. This is a straightforward form, requesting you to provide a username and gathering required contact information. Please ensure you complete this information accurately. This is a multi-step process. First you need to apply to a Primary Town. By creating an account and requesting the Primary Referee Assignor validate all new applications, we are seeking to reduce the problem of fake and invalid referee accounts. 

3. After You Apply

The validation process by the Primary Town Referee Assignor may take as long as 48 hours. Regardless of the response (Approved or Denied) you will be notified via email along with detailed next step instructions. Once you receive these instructions, you will be able to login and apply to additional towns.

BAYS requires that referees submit complete game reports, by 11/30 following the fall season and 6/30 following the spring season, to qualify for payment.
