The Niagara Soccer Association has been selected as the Pilot district for the Ontario Soccer Association's Referee Mentor Program which is being led by Steve Mortimer.
Early in the New Year, Mortimer will visit and meet with the Region's District and Club Head Referees to review and plan the launch of the program in time for the 2015 outdoor soccer season.
At that time more details on the program will become available and Niagara will begin searching for senior qualified referees to be accredited as mentors as they look to build the next wave of high ranking Match Officials.
Also, this past summer the OSA included Niagara in the review process for the Match Officials Policies and Procedures manual and their suggestions greatly contributed to the final version of the document.
