John Bieniewicz – Fallen Referee

To All SRA’s:

As you may have heard, a fellow referee from Michigan, John Bieniewicz, has passed away after taking a punch to the head during a soccer game this past weekend.  John leaves behind two young boys.  I urge all Referee Associations to help out this family in time of need.  I also urge you to send this link to all your referees to send a donation.  Every thing helps.  Let’s show this family that the referee community is behind them and support them in this time of need.  The link to contribute is:

God Bless his family and may he rest in peace.

D.C. United Referee Days

D.C. United are again holding referee days at RFK Stadium.

This is a great opportunity to ask Professional Referees questions and get some insight into what it takes to be a MLS Referee.

There will be games next season. Look for these to be listed in spring of 2014.
