Greetings Soccer Community,
It is almost that time of the year where SDSSA and the SD Soccer Referee Committee announce the Male and Female “Young Referee Of The Year”. This award is presented annually at the AGM, this year to be held in Sioux Falls.
We are looking for nominations you may have from your Member Organization. As South Dakota is somewhat rural, there may be a referee that is doing an outstanding job within their community that has not popped onto the radar. This individual must be 18 years of age or younger. We need to have a written recommendation for this person. It needs to include: Who the nominee is; Why they are being nominated; and also to include anything they do OUTSIDE the soccer community (example honors student, volunteers with 4-H, organized a food drive, etc..). This nomination can come from a parent, a coach, a soccer board member, a fan, ANYONE!!!
Please email your nominee to Chad Landis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is October 1st.
Thank you and look forward to seeing you on the pitch.
SD State Youth Referee Administrator
