Referee engagement, growth and facilitation

–Referees will be invited to interact with our staff, our clubs and in collaborative and interactive settings.

–SoCal Premier will work with several local and regional referee associations to bring the best officials to manage our competitions

–Each club will be encouraged to run their own referee development program to increase the number of referees and grow a new generation of referees to make up for the shortage of referees we now are experiencing.
