Although many think of MAYSA solely as a soccer program, MAYSA also mentors youth as part of its Youth Referee Program.
This year Julia Weller and Nick Sharr have been selected as PA West Youth Soccer Association's "Youth Referees Of The Year". Both were nominated for the achievements on and off the field and selected from over 2,000 youth referees in Western PA! Julia and Nick are both accomplished in academics as well as community service while also achieving successful careers for their respective high school can club teams. The criteria for selection includes personal development, promotion of the game and community involvement.
We are very proud of their achievement and look forward to seeing them advance their referee skills through college and into their adult lives.
