GAMES CANCELLED-Message from District II (Snake River League)

FYI-All Snake River League Games for this week are CANCELLED. Games in the Snake River League will begin during the week of April 7, 2014.

Message from IYSA District II Commissioner Bobbi Tracy:

As I’m sure you can imagine; we are still reeling from the Shock of losing our fearless leader, friend, and family member.  Ryan Cook is trying to get all the “family” details figured out, and Bobbi Tracy is trying to get all the “soccer” stuff figured out.  Dean had HUGE shoes to fill in all his capacity’s, so it will be a bit of a challenge in getting everything back in “smooth” running order.  So your patience is greatly appreciated.  (And thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, they are felt and appreciated.)

 Dean Cook will have a viewing Friday night and his funeral will be Saturday.  Ryan is at the funeral home right now, so arrangements will be announced ASAP.

As District Commissioner, I am making the EXECUTIVE DECISION … that ALL games for this week is CANCELLED.  For Dean, for wet fields, for proposed upcoming storm warning ….(and for those that have made that suggestion … thank you)

Dean Cook

Today Mr. Dean Cook passed away. For those of you who knew Dean, he was a great pioneer in Idaho Falls Soccer who gave an enormous amount of his time and energy into making our soccer programs better. He will be sorely missed. I don’t have any details at this point, but wanted to pass on the information.



Grade 7 Referee Course Upcoming


USSF Grade 7 Course

DATE: Tuesday, July 8, 6-10 pm and Wednesday, July 9, 6-10 pm (both nights are required)

LOCATION: BYU-Idaho, Hart Building Room 170

By the new standards that will go into effect on July 1, 2014, a candidate will not be required to have been a Grade 8 Referee to become a Grade 7 referee. However, it is my personal recommendation that the referee has at least completed the Grade 8 online material so that they at least have a basic framework of The Laws of the Game before becoming a Grade 7 referee.  Although this is not mandatory nor can I enforce such a requirement, I make the statement none-the-less.

The purpose of the Grade 7 Referee Course is to prepare officials for the amateur adult game. Based on the level of training provided, U.S. Soccer recommends that these officials be assigned accordingly to best service the game.

See attached Referee Requirements to see the new requirements for the various Grade levels.
