Congratulations to the Cal North referees selected for the United States Youth Soccer (US Youth Soccer) National Championships to be held July 23-28 in Overland Park, Kansas! Returning referees to this competition are Samantha Moos and Vince Apple-Chiarella. Also attending with them for their first time are Luis Nunez Jr. and Eric Ehrhardt.All referees are an integral part of every competition and as such tournament referees that advance to the next stages have been selected from a large number of fellow referees based upon their own collective successful performances. Their abilities are continually tested in very highly contested and challenging environments. These Referees now after working through State Cups and Regional Finals will now be moving onward to serve as officials at the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series. Being selected to the national level is a great accomplishment and honor for these referees who are dedicated to promoting fair play and furthering their own development while first serving the game to the best of their abilities.
Our Cal North Referees have set up a blog together while they are at the tournament so we may all attend (virtually) and follow some of their experiences.
