The Iowa Referee Academy

Greetings once again!

I want to invite all Iowa referees, youth, high school, adult, college and professional, to one of the greatest learning opportunities in the country. The Iowa Referee Academy is arguably the second best Academy opportunity in our nation, limited only by our seasonal weather.

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

Distinguished speakers will be coming here for YOU and no one else. 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 28th.

Regards,
Steve Kopf

Iowa Referee Committee (IRC) Chairman
