Congratulations to this year’s 2019 recipients, Sydney Baltyn and Aldemar Jimenez, both, of the Upstate.

Each year the South Carolina Youth Soccer Association (SCYSA) selects from the submitted nominations the two most outstanding youth referees.

Sydney, 18 is the Female Youth Referee of the Year and Aldemar, 17 is the Male Youth Referee of the Year.  Both are varsity athletes and graduating high school seniors and will be attending college next semester in Columbia and Clemson respectively.
