MLA maintains a payment rate schedule for Officials. It is posted on this web site.
PLEASE NOTE - Rate are higher for those who are Current, USL Certified officials.
Local events can arrange their own payment process.
RECOMMENDATION - Local events pay officials onsite at the conclusion of the contest. Most clubs have a payer available with a check book at the event for this purpose. Others hosting clubs choose to mail checks out following an event.
Tracking actual games officiated, not just games assigned helps to avoid payment errors.
Please communicate your process to the officials.
NOTE - There is a fee that HS Boys teams pay per game to cover Official's mileage.
You may wish to compensate for mileage - to attract officials.
