The Montrose Avalanche Soccer Club is looking for referees interested in officiating the Black Canyon Invitational Tournament (BCIT), which will be played September 30th to October 2nd.

Matches will be played at the Sunset Mesa Soccer Complex and Cerise Park Fields in Montrose, Colorado.   The tournament is sanctioned by U.S. Soccer and will be played under USYSA rules.  Under 10 will play 7 v. 7, Under 11/12 will play 9 v.9.   U13/14  will play 11 v. 11. 

Payment will be standard Colorado Soccer Association rates:  U-10 – $30 (1 official/no offside), U11/12 – $30/$20, U13/14  – $37/$25

 Match lengths are as follows:

 U-10 – U12:  25 min. halves (30 minutes for finals) 

U-13 – U14:  30 min. halves (35 minutes for finals)

Note that the BCIT pays full CSA rates, but the length of the games is less than the CSA standard

Housing will be provided (Saturday night double occupancy) to any referees working at least 6 matches ( 3 per day) and traveling more than 1 ½ hours.  In the event that we have referees traveling more than 3 hours, housing will be provided for Friday night as well.    Local referees will cover any Friday evening or early Saturday morning games.
