The CYC has a CYC Sports Officials Association (CYC-SOA) for all officials (on the field or at the scorer’s table) that are paid to officiate for the CYC in all sports.  All paid CYC Sports Officials are considered Independent Contractors, and as such must join the CYC-SOA. To join the CYC-SOA officials must:

  1. Register each year with the CYC-SOA. The cost is $5.00 per official for the whole year no matter if you officiate/keep score for 1 or 1,000 games.  To register go here:
