The Iowa Referee Academy


Greetings once again!

I want to extend an invitation to all Iowa soccer referees, youth, high school, adult, college and professional, to one of the greatest learning opportunities in the country. The Terry Vaughn Referee Academy is recognized as one of the best — limited only by our seasonal weather. Plus, attendance automatically satisfies your annual 5 hour continuing education recertification requirement!

Once again, we will have a strong cadre of Instructors from US Soccer and NISOA:

- TBD (US Soccer)

TBD (US Soccer)


These distinguished speakers are coming here for YOU and no one else -- all to help you become a better referee. The only thing that will keep you from tapping into this vast storehouse of soccer refereeing knowledge is you. Take advantage of
this opportunity and join us on Saturday, February ??, 2017.
