What is your official position within the USPSA?
My official title is Midwest Regional Referee Coordinator. That puts me in charge of recruitment, training and retention of referees in the Midwest. So at this point, I ref, I teach and I assess. The regional coordinator position is relatively new, so we are still sorting out exactly what and how are jobs are to be performed. I also serve as Supervisor of Referees for the Mid America Power Soccer League.
How long have you been refereeing power soccer mayhem? How did you first get introduced to the sport?
I took my referee class in April of 2009. Chris Mulholland came to Indiana and taught the class.
A friend and fellow referee, Dave Macy, got a notification of the class from another fellow referee Tony Asoera. We had discussed it and said we were not gonna go. On Thursday, I called Dave and we were talking and neither of us had anything going on Saturday. We decided what the heck, let’s go down and see what this power soccer thing is all about. We did and we both fell in love with it.
You also referee other forms of soccer, correct? How would...
