2013 USYSA Youth National Finals
WESTERN NEW YORK REFEREES REACH THE HEIGHT OF YOUTH SOCCER
WNYSRA Referees Anthony Visconti, Lauren Dearman and Rabee Naji share a proud moment for them and for our state referee association at the USYSA National Finals in July.
Western New York referees Anthony Visconti, Lauren Dearman and Rabee Naji were all invited to the United States Youth Soccer National Finals held in Overland Park, Kansas on July 22 to July 28, 2013.

They were chosen from among 150 referees who attended the USYSA Region 1 Championships held at the University of Rhode Island about 3 weeks prior due to the high caliber performance that all three of them turned in at that tournament. Greg Irwin, another WNYSRA referee, was chosen as an alternate.

Previous to 2013, WNYSRA has only sent at most 2 referees to this most prestigious tournament for youth soccer in any given year and the competition for those spots is as intense or more so than for the teams that attend who were the regional winners for each gender and age grouping.

We congratulate all of them and wish them the best in their officiating career that we hope will be as successful in the future as it already has been in the past.Well done gang!

Please congratulate them if you see them. This is truly a most remarkable acheivement.
