Can I use the word "referee" for other sports as well? I've heard this term in soccer, but I'm not sure whether other sports use it or not.
Yes, you can! However, not all sports have "referees". Some other sports that do have "referees" are basketball, boxing, ice hockey, and dodgeball. In some cases, they use a different word than "referee". Ex: Those two might hurt each other without a referee. Ex: It's the referee's job to make sure the rules are followed in a basketball game.
