Terry Vaughn 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 and Advanced Clinic 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 with US Soccer!

We will have a strong cadre of Referees, Instructors, and Coaches representing US Soccer, AYSO, the NFHS, and NISOA.

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. Please take advantage of this opportunity and join us on Saturday, March 3, 2018.

Iowa Referee Committee (IRC) Chairman
