The MLQ Commission recognizes high-quality officiation and snitching is paramount to the success of the league. To this end, referee information and resources will be handled by seasoned referee Clay Dockery. Snitch coordination and development will be handled by seasoned snitch Tad Walters. Each MLQ match will require a highly-skilled and experienced snitch to match the talent of our players. Certification is not required, but you will have to try out for the position.
MLQ’s current business model accounts for the most generous gameday staff payment plan in our sport's history. We understand the value of quality refereeing and snitching and the dedication and time our sport's officials put in. We wanted to make sure to reward that and get our teams the best officiating possible. Payments per game for the 2017 season are below. Payments for the 2018 season will be released in the spring.
Head Referee: $30
Assistant Referee: $10
Snitch Referee: $10
Snitch Runner: $15
We hope that this will lead to an increase in interested parties and, in turn, an increased willingness to train and develop under the lead referee organization in our sport. To help make further improvements to the quality of officials, we will be using quantitative analysis and videos to evaluate referees and snitches and provide them with feedback.
