ENY Elite Referee Program

The ENY Elite Referee Program has been established by the ENYSSA President, Mr. Sal Rapaglia, the ENYYSA President, Mr. Richard Christiano, and the ENY Referee Board and council to further develop Referees within Eastern New York.

The Referees ranging from Grade 7 to National Referees from all areas of Eastern New York. The program is intended to promote, assist, mentor, and instruct the young promising officials who have an opportunity to reach the highest levels of the game.

It is the intent of the program to prepare the officials for the next step in their careers. The referees are selected to certain tournaments and assignments that they will not only be seen by outside administrators but also give them a challenge to better themselves.

The referees attend clinics and are given projects to particpate in within the program. They are given full assessments or evaluations to track the progress of each official by different assessors. Recommondations from assignors, ENY Board members, or Association Presidents are given to members of the Elite Board to be evaluated for possibly being involved with the ENY Elite Referee Program.

If you are between the age of 17-30, and wish to be a part of this program, please contact Lee Suckle - Lee@suckle.net
