The Spring 2019 soccer season is coming to a close.  The President’s State Cup concluded 28 April.  The Publix Bob Brantley State Cup concluded this past weekend 11 & 12 May.

The SRC wants to acknowledge the entire referee population of South Carolina Referees.  Every referee was and is a vital member of an organization that serves no less than six (6) affiliated youth leagues, another three (3) affiliated amateur adult leagues and four (4) semi-professional leagues within the borders of our state.  Many referees and assignors have worked demanding and, due to unprecedented rain, compressed Spring match schedules.

Additionally, two (2) of our youth referees were recognized by the SCYSA, South Carolina Youth Soccer Association.  Every year SCYSA selects and awards the Female Youth Referee of the Year and the Male Youth Referee of the Year for outstanding dedication and performance.  Congratulations to Sydney Baltyn, our Female Youth Referee of the Year and Aldemar Jimenez, Male Youth Referee of the Year.  Both Syd and Al are Upstate referees.  They were nominated by their ARA, Area Referee Administrator, Ross Picillo.

There are Region III opportunities June and July this Summer.  Ask your ARA about training and competitive events.  All the best to South Carolina Referees and their families.
