Availability now being requested

I am now accepting referee availability information on sportssched for Tournament of Champions on Dec 5, 6 & 7 at Carpenter and Richland College.

ntxreferees updates

The training and assessment tracking system has been completely updated. Please let me know if you find any unusual or incorrect information. A few of the updates:

Assessment List
The required assessments are now displayed as Youth, Adult and AR. As before, failed assessments will not be displayed.

Registration Tracking
Hours, Fitness and Exam results are now included in the Registration Tracking section. The results of all assessments connected with the registration record are now grouped and displayed as a Youth, Adult or AR assessment.

Training Tracking
This section has been removed and the Hours, Fitness and Exam results are now included in the Registration Tracking section.

Assessment Tracking
A list of all the individual's assessments appears at the bottom of the registration page. When a new assessment has been completely entered, it will appear on that list just as it does on the SRA's Assessment List. Updates to an assessment record automatically notify the SRA via email.

Thank You

The Ken Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund wants to thank you for your continued support of our fund raising efforts. It would not be possible for us to help deserving officials with scholarships without our sponsors, donors, players and volunteers. A big THANK YOU goes out to each and every one of you for another successful event.
If you are interested in becoming involved in future events or the applying for this scholarship, you can get more information here.

Future Tournaments

I will be assigning and sending out requests for availability on sportssched for Shawnee Trail Shootout in May in Frisco and Flamefest in June in McKinney.

US Soccer Referee Grade Restructure

Implementing the restructure....

Most of us have heard that our referee grades are being restructured. US Soccer has been working on this restructure with US Youth Soccer and US Adult Soccer so that the grades of referees better serve the youth and adult games. Whether you are a referee, referee assignor, or Association board member you need to understand these changes.

While US Soccer has set down the basic requirements and game levels, the State Associations have been allowed to further define these requirements and game levels to better serve the games in their State. Your State Referee Committee has been meeting, discussing and coming up with the best program options to serve the players, associations and games in North Texas Soccer. We have discussed this restructure with US Soccer more..

Ken Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund

Why we do this....

The Ken Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund is intended to provide a scholarship program for soccer referees wishing to continue their education. The available funds for scholarships are in direct proportion to the success of our fund raising events. Although soccer players generally have scholarship opportunities from colleges, playing associations and clubs, this is one of the few opportunities specifically intended for the distribution of scholarships to the soccer official.

We began in 2006 with our first scramble which continues today as an annual event each May. Although the previous events have been very successful, we are receiving many more requests for assistance than there are funds available. It is with this in mind, that we partnered with three other charities in 2011 to provide unique events to raise awareness for the scholarship fund. We are asking for your help to ensure the success of future fund raising events, resulting in the enhanced success of the scholarship program.

Additional information about future fund raising events or the scholarship fund is available here.
