The Director of Officials/State Referee Administrator is excited to announce that the following referees have been selected to represent Indiana at the 2019 President's Cup Regionals in KS and State Cup Regionals in Michigan:

"Congratulations on your selection to represent Indiana at the President's Cup Regionals. Your performance was recognized many in Indiana; it is now time to exhibit the same talents and skills to other states.

Although this will be a fun event, it is also an educational event where you will prove your refereeing skills and potentially get selected to the President's Cup Nationals. Don't hold back, give it all you have each game and everyday on the field & in the classroom.

I will be there with you cheering you on and helping you achieve your personal goals/objectives. Safe travels" - Samir Yasa, Director of Officials/State Referee Administrator
