Good Morning - 

If you are getting this, you are part of a Soccer Association in Western South Dakota.  The Spring Season is just around the corner and hopefully soon we will all be out on the fields.

To better serve your games, we need YOUR help in recruiting potential officials.  WE NEED MORE THAN JUST YOUTHS, WE NEED ADULTS!!  Please strongly encourage your membership to consider becoming a referee.  Without increasing the numbers and training, your leagues run the risk of no referee coverage on your games.  

Please consider sending this information and attached document to your membership and post on your social media and websites.  You can also find additional information on our website 

HERE IS THE UPCOMING CLASS INFO – Starting this year, you MUST attend a field session to complete your certification.

All classes can be located at 

Cost to attend is $60.00 and is paid when registering for the class. 

Should any questions arise, please contact myself  or our State Director of Instruction- Joe Masek.  Joe’s email is
