S R S O A
SRSOA meets the SECOND Tuesday of every month.
Tuesday, October 8; 8:00 PM
Where: IF Parks & Rec Activity Center (1575 N. Skyline, west side of Skyline just before you get to the airport)
Topic: The August meeting will focus on high school training topics. The September and October meetings will address both high school and junior high needs. Winter SRSOA meetings will only be held as needed to support USSF Referee Program registration for 2014.
It is critical that you attend as many of the SRSOA meetings as you can. Even the most experienced refs learn something from every meeting.
Might want to check out the latest Week in Review from the referee page at US Soccer. This is a site we should all access weekly to see how the Laws of the Game are properly and, sometimes, improperly applied.
The web master for the SRSOA site is Rick Spielman. If you have information that should be posted to this site, please send it to him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may call him at 528-6052.
SRSOA officers are:
President: Rick Spielman
Vice-President: Chuck Raines
Secretary: Robert Cox
Treasurer: Dan Kotansky

High School Season is Just Around the Corner!
Can you believe it? Summer adult leagues are starting to wind down with tournaments starting soon. In just one week, the IHSAA will hold the 2013 clinic for the district soccer commissioners and rules interpreters. The first high school referee meetings will be held in early August and high school play begins in late August.. If you are interested in registering as a high school referee, please contact Chuck Raines, the District VI Commissioner. You must be at least 18 years old to referee in high school.
Junior High Season is not Far Behind!
The BYSL Junior High teams will be forming later this summer and their league play will begin not long after school is back in session. There are plenty of games for younger referees, so keep in touch with Shel Williams for further information.
