PA West Soccer Appoints New SRA, SYRA and SRC Chair
The PA West Soccer Executive Board appointed a new State Referee Administrator, a new State Youth Referee Administrator, and a new chair of the State Referee Committee.
Scot Jennings is the new State Referee Administrator. The SRA oversees the implementation of referee education and development within the state association.
The new State Youth Referee Administrator is Sean Heilman. The SYRA works to coordinate referee education and development among youth referees.
Mark Hopkins is now the chair of the State Referee Committee. The chair oversees the committee’s meetings.
US Soccer's Referee Department is working closely with PA West Soccer to support the transition to the new SRA and SYRA to assure no interuption in referee training and certification.
PA West Soccer is also dedicating office personnel to support the SRC. Erin Cook will provide administrative by managing the data base and helping coordinate education programming. Ms. Cook performs a similar role with the Coaching Education program.
These appointments are part of the transition to return the SRC to the state association after a time as an independent organization. Look for additional appointments and updated referee certification schedules in the near future.
