whistleYou may have asked yourself at one time or another, what is the SRC? The SRC is the organization sanctioned by the USSF for promoting and implementing U.S. Soccer’s initiatives and programs in support of all affiliated members and competitions within the South Carolina jurisdiction.

Referee Spotlight : Youth Referees of the year

I am very happy to announce that Lydia Ratliff  and  Noah Haver have been selected as South Carolina’s Youth Soccer (SCYS)  Refereesof the Year for 2017!

Lydia has been USSF Certified since 2015 and has worked over 230 games.  She has officiated in all levels of youth play to include the center of a Region 3 Premiere League game.  Her maturity and professionalism both on and off the pitch is why she was nominated by her local assignors.  She is a fixture at all local tournaments and league games with her “go-getter”, positive attitude. In addition to officiating soccer, Lydia, a high school Junior, is a member of the All State Honor Chorus, the National Honor Society and Beta Club.

Noah has been USSF certified since 2015 and has worked 170 games to date with 93 of those as a center official.  His professionalism and attitude have been recognized by his peers and coaches on many weekend afternoons.  In addition to his interest in officiating, Noah is an active member of the Greenville County EMS Explorer team and preparing for a future as a paramedic.

On behalf of the SC Youth Soccer Association, the Charleston Area Soccer Referee Association, SC Upstate Referee Society and the State Referee Committee, please join us in congratulating our two outstanding officials on their achievement.
