As 2015 draws to a close, I want to thank you for your efforts and support both off and on the field. The year kicked off with a Development Academy Futsal Tournament in CT during a January snowstorm and was soon followed by the outdoor season of Development Academy, PDL, NPSL, Open Cup, U20 and exhibition games! Through it all, our referees showed great resolve in an extremely challenging, yet very successful 2015 campaign!
Much of that success was made possible by the tremendous assistance of state administrators. Their support, advice and guidance with the selection of their respective pool of referees proved invaluable and was greatly appreciated.
After careful tabulations, considerations and observations, I would like to recognize Miguel Lara (RI) as the New England Referee of the Year. He demonstrated the utmost professionalism, dedication, work ethic and spirit throughout the entire year. Congratulations Miguel!!
2016 promises to be an even busier year with a new women’s league coming into the fold in the Northeast.
Preparation start now! Let’s be ready!
Wishing you and your families a safe, healthy and Happy New Year!
