Ideas for Providing Money to Coaches to Bring each Saturday to Pay Officials:

If it is a challenge to get funds to your coaches every week, here are some ideas that could facilitate the process:

1. Using the November-December game schedule, note the number of games each of your teams are playing.  Write out a check to each coach to cover those games.  The coach would cash the check and have the funds on hand for each Saturday.  Do this again in January for the January-February games.  This would allow you to do all of the checks in just two sittings.

 

2. For programs that need to have a paper trail for funds distributed, consider having the coaches provide the payment from their own personal finances and submit a reimbursement form to the program.  You would then be able to write out a check with a documented reimbursement form.
