Steve Mauricio has been appointed to Region 1 Referee Committee. We congratulate Steve on this new opportunity. Steve has served for many years as our State Referee Administrator. Steve has also had two opportunities to present Rhode Islands Identification process and implementation at the Federation Referee AGM in Chicago to other states and their board members. Steve has worked closely with the regional referee committee for the past few years attending many USYS and USClub events and meetings. Steve will continue to serve as RI SRA. His ideas such as our Elite Referee travel team and Academy Referee Panel are admired by other states. This new position should bring new and continued opportunities to RI referees.
