US Youth Soccer is pleased to announce the 88 referees who, based on their performance at the state and regional level, will be officiating the games at the 2013 US Youth Soccer National Championships, presented by the National Guard, July 23-28 in Overland Park, Kan.

The selection process for referees for the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is based on performance throughout the Series. Just as the teams advance from the state to regional to national level, so do the referees.

The United States Soccer Federation is sending five referee assessors to Overland Park, in addition to several US Youth Soccer assessors. The referees are an integral part of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, and they play a key role in its success and advancement to the next level. Being invited to the national level is a great honor for these referees who are dedicated to promoting fair play and furthering their development.

This year, 20 referees — five from each of US Youth Soccer’s four regions — will be returning to work at their second consecutive US Youth Soccer National Championships. Randall Kelley of Massachusetts worked as the head referee in last year’s US Youth Soccer Under-19 Boys McGuire Cup final. He said it is an incredible honor to be selected for these games, considering their prestige within youth soccer.

“So far, it’s been the pinnacle of my refereeing career to referee the McGuire Cup final,” Kelley said. “It’s something that we’ve worked for, for years. It’s a real process. We work hard to get better and improve with every tournament we do.”

Referees participating in the 55 US Youth Soccer State Association State Cup events are considered for advancement to participate in one of the four US Youth Soccer Regional Championship events. The top referees from each regional event are then considered for advancement to the National Championships. Once selected to the National Championships, the top 20 referees are identified and invited to return to the event the following year.
