Referees: Part of the Educational Process and a Team Member
A Talk by Samantha Moos and Kenyatta Scott
California North Referee Administration and
San Francisco Soccer Referee Association
About this talk
High school soccer sets itself apart from grassroots soccer (ie. community or travel leagues) as it is directed by a stricter set of guidelines. High school athletes have additional regulations and rules that they need to abide by including maintaining a minimum GPA for eligibility. These athletes may also have more stringent consequences for inappropriate behavior on and off the pitch.
This presentation will examine the primary three influential forces - teacher , soccer coach, and referee - that help develop and shape student-athletes. The way the three role models work together and separately will be a determining factor in the development of impressionable youth.
