I Did it So Can You!

Cal South is proud to announce our “I Did It, So Can You!” Innovate to Grow Grant partially funded by US Soccer.

This grant is targeted to increase the female presence in our local soccer landscape and will run from now until the end of 2024.


  • Free Referee starter gear for all NEW female participants who complete their Grassroots Referee license requirements and are approved.

  • Discounted registration fee for those same female referees when they return next year if they complete the social media post and distribute their influence code to three other female referees who become approved.

The Details:

New female referees will receive an email providing them detailed information on the initiative. This will include their code to distribute and a code for free gear to redeem with Cappelli.

Female participants will then email a link to their social media posts or videos to us at digitalprojects@calsouth.com

Cal South will email qualifying participants information on how to pay for discounted referee registration.
