As grassroots managers, we’ve all run into difficulty with finding or paying referees. Even if it’s simply just the added extra on matchday of going to a cash point, while everthing else is sorted digitally. YesRef remove that grassroots painpoint, and so much more.
Here’s how they work with grassroots club Braishfield Bees.
Braishfield Bees are a growing youth football club competing on Saturday mornings in the Testway Youth Football League with teams from Under 7s to Under 18s, as well as an Under 7s team in the Hampshire Girls Youth Football League. The teams are run by volunteer coaches and managers, all of whom have passed (through club sponsored) FA Level 1 coaching courses or higher and are all DBS checked and have attended first aid training.
YesRef has simplified the hassle of finding and paying sports officials, through their user-friendly mobile app. Sports officials are paid on game day digitally via the club account, preventing the team managers from paying through their personal accounts and claiming back from the club.
This has helped save time and effort for all involved. YesRef provides all invoices and receipts as required, and offers a single location to manage officials.
Changing the game
YesRef reduces club volunteers time and effort in finding officials every week. The YesRef platform will notify officials who are willing to travel to your location, qualified appropriately and available to officiate. YesRef pays the officials in real-time at the end of the game, preventing the requirement to collect bank details and add individual payees each week. YesRef allows you to keep track of all games and payments in one location. A win-win for all involved!
