Squirt- 35
Peewee- 42
Bantam- 48
Midget - 55
Adult - 65
Modified (Middle/Junior High school league) -70
JV (9th-10th Graders League) - 78
Varsity - 85

I get about 5-7 games a week from Sept-June (With Fall leagues and Spring Leagues) So im rake in QUITE a bit of money while going to college. Ill be reffing at the Empire State Games this summer where the best of the best teams around NY compete but i have no idea the pay for that. Those games will use a 3-man system everything else is 2 man system.

Most PIM in a game i cant remember but ive sent 4 kids off for Match penalties in one period just last week.

Im 19 and I am pissed i didnt get into reffing sooner..i LOVE it...its a LOT of fun.

BTW to any other NY Refs.....How NICE was it that they got rid of that horrible rule to add a Misconduct to the High Sticking penalty last year? 12 minutes for a high sticking call was absurd. Thankfully that was a one year thing.

Wow, the pay is incredible down there. It is about half that in Calgary. A guy could make a living off of reffing that hockey.
