Kansas Referee Achieves Professional Referee Status

posted Feb 1, 2015, 12:33 PM by Cory Kramer   [ updated Jul 11, 2016, 7:13 PM ]

One of Kansas' very own, Kyle Atkins, recently completed all the requirements necessary to be placed on the MLS/Professional League Assignment list.  This qualifies Kyle to be assigned to all Professional League Matches, as well as being considered for assignment to friendly international matches, played in the US.

Hard work, dedication to the game and the fitness requirements, and sacrificing time away from his family over the past 4-5 years has resulted in Kyle realizing a goal he established as a young Kansas Referee.  

Next time you see Kyle, give him a pat on the back.  This is truely a great accomplishment for Kyle and the Kansas Referee Program.
