(July 11, 2021) – Five referees from the Cal South Referee Program were selected recently to show off their game-minding skills at this summer’s US Youth Soccer national-level events.

The referees were selected from amongst those working the last couple weeks at both the US Youth Soccer Far West Region Presidents Cup in Salt Lake City, UT and the US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships in Boise, ID. Referees who excelled at those events were added to the list of those chosen to work at the 2021 US Youth Soccer National Championships, to be held July 20-25 in Bradenton-Sarasota, FL, and the 2021 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup, which just concluded play this weekend (July 8-11) in Des Moines, IA.

The referees chosen to work these events are:

2021 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup
Edwar Hernandez – SC Elite SRA

2021 US Youth Soccer National Championships
Gustavo Barrientos – Central Valley RA
Carlos Saul Rojas – San Diego County SRA
Jose Landa – Long Beach SRA
Christopher Calderon – Antelope Valley SRA

Cal South wishes to congratulate our referees who were tapped to work at these national events.

And if you would like to hear what it was like for these five referees working the Nationals, they will be the special guest panelists for the Cal South Referee Program’s monthly In-Service Training Webinar later this month. On July 22, they will share their tips and secrets toward unlocking referee success to our members. Please join us at this event.
