I am contacting you in regards to the US Youth Futsal National Finals being held in February 13-16, 2015 at the New Century Field-house, in New Century, KS. This is a great opportunity for US Soccer Futsal Referees to gain valuable experience and be taught by top officials in the sport.

Over the last few years I have met many of you and most likely spent time talking about the growth of Futsal in the US. US Youth Futsal has been a great supporter of the Futsal Referee Program within US Soccer. Each year they listen to my ideas and work hard to a make those ideas reality. The increase in numbers of officials and the quality of those working games throughout the US has grown considerably. This year I asked that we step up and really make these National Finals a National event by including officials from all parts of the country.

With the announcement of the Professional Futsal League and the creation of the US Soccer State Futsal Referee grade and National Futsal Referee grade, it is even more important for our Futsal Referees to be part of the experience.

Game fees will be paid and hotel provided if travelling. Food vouchers during the tournament hours will also be provided. Instruction will be provide by myself and Shane Butler throughout the tournament. Over the years we have developed a training program that gives valuable information and insight in a very short period of time. The value of what is accomplished easily out weighs the costs involved.

Please forward this message to your Futsal Referees and have them complete the application via the link below. If there are any questions please do not hesitate to contact me personally.
