Referee Showcase logo

December 5 & 6, 2020

The Referee Showcase will be held during Gulf States Showcase in Foley, Alabama. This is a premier event with top-level youth teams from around the Southeast being scouted by college coaching staff. 

We host 30+ soccer events a year and love working with great soccer officials. We value high-quality referees who show up on time, communicate professionally, and enjoy officiating youth soccer games. Our weekend events and our Referee Academy are primarily in Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.

Once you are certified, the final steps to becoming a Snap Soccer referee are simple. We ask all officials (including minors) to submit a W9 form, completed with a current home address, tax identification number, and signature. You can securely upload your W9 below. 

Referee Payment Systems

In order to efficiently pay our referees, we offer a direct deposit option for every Snap Soccer event. Our direct deposit option does not incur any fees or use any middleman in order to deposit your payment. Even better, you will always be paid two business days after the event is finished, avoiding the hassle of waiting in line for a check. Setup can be completed in three easy steps: 

  1. Create a contractor account with Quickbooks Online.
  2. Input W9 information in your new account.
  3. Input your preferred bank account information and routing number.

If you would like to set up direct deposit with Snap Soccer Events, please email accounting@snapsoccer.com for the link to get started. You can find more information about our direct deposit system below.
