Congratulations to Emily Astle and Braxton Pauls who have been selected as the Kansas Young Referees of the Year for 2016. This award is given to those referees who, not only excel on the field, but also in the classroom and community. Congratulations to both and they will now join the nominations for Region II Referee of the Year.
In the Futsal class we will focus on the differences between the outdoor game and Futsal (for example, 2 Referees, substitutions on the fly and DFKs without a wall) and the signals and techniques employed by Referees in Futsal.
