Mike Bartram

Elected as a KSRA Life Member in 2007.

When people speak about Kamloops Soccer, it is virtually certain that Mike's name will come up.

Mike served the game as a coach, mentor, player, referee and fan for several years.

As a match official, Mike worked the local fields for 15 years, eventually achieving Class 1 status and officiating at several Provincial and National competitions during his tenure.

Mike was also a mainstay on the KSRA executive, serving for 10 years including 5 as president. Mike was incredibly dedicated to the development of youth officials in the region as he was a certified referee instructor, who taught several clinics to local officials.

Sadly Mike passed away on November 21, 2000; however, Mike's legacy will forever be a cornerstone of soccer in Kamloops. Mike is survived by his wife Charmaine and daughters Karen, Sadie and Haley.
