As of September 1, U.S Soccer's technical staff will be led by Rick Eddy in the new position of Director of Referee Development. Rick will oversee a team currently comprised of Sandy Hunt, Craig Lowery, Herb Silva, Alfred Kleinaitis, Jonathan Meersman, and Ed Marco. In his position, Rick will oversee all technical aspects of U.S. Soccer's Referee Program. Contact information for these individuals will be provided in next month's Department Update.
Rick is a National Instructor and National Assessor who spent 10 years as a Professional Assistant Referee in the MLS who has also worked as an Assistant Referee coach with PRO. Sandy is a retired FIFA official who has worked multiple Women's World Cups and was one of the first female officials to work in the MLS. Additionally, she is a National Assessor and National Instructor. Craig is presently a Professional Assistant Referee with PRO who has been working MLS matches since 1997. Craig is a retired FIFA Assistant Referee, and is also a National Instructor. You are all familiar with Herb, the longtime U.S. Soccer Director of Referee Identification and Training. Herb was a U.S. Soccer National Referee who worked in the NASL and was one of the first fulltime Referees in the MISL. Alfred is a longtime National Assessor and national Instructor, and U.S. Soccer's resident expert on the Laws of the Game. Jonathan is a National Instructor and serves as U.S Youth Soccer's Region II Referee Administrator. Ed is National Instructor and National Assessor who provides specialized support for futsal programming.
As a condition of this new role with U.S Soccer, Sandy is obligated to resign as Washington State Director of Instruction (SDI) effective August 31, 2014. While this seems to be a huge loss to the Washington soccer community, let’s keep in mind the tremendous contributions Sandy has made in her one year's service as Washington’s SDI. I think we all can agree that under her leadership and direction, the referee instruction and training program has been elevated to a whole higher level. We need to honor these achievements by continuing the path, taking it ever higher and being proud to look back and say “this all started with Sandy Hunt”. Sandy also promises that we haven’t seen the last of her and will be available for informal consultation with any of us on any appropriate topics. I intend to kept her copied on any Washington referee topics which she might be interested in.

Certification, Re-Certification,
& Upgrade Requirements

The US Soccer Referee Program has recently released new Certification, Re-Certification and Upgrade requirements for all Referee Grades.  After much study, communications with the US Soccer Referee Program office and other State Referee Committees, the Washington State Referee Committee has adopted the new requirements effective immediately for the 2014 Registration Year.  These new requirements, and any variations from the Referee Program requirements, are detailed under the Administration option of the Main Menu above.  Click Certification Requirements (updated 05-16-14) for a direct link to the page.

For further clarification and rationale from US Soccer, see: Open Letter to Referee Community

In addition, the SRC will often review a referee’s "Portfolio" when making decision on who is offered SRC sponsored training & events, assignments and travel. See this document for more information: SRC Portfolio Guidelines
