Wichita Referee Named Kansas State Male Referee of the Year

Wichita's own Peyton Sanders has been named the 2014 Kansas State Male Referee of the Year! That is a huge accomplishment! Congrats, Peyton!



Fomer SCSA player and referee debuts in the MLS!

Did you happen to notice anyone familiar on the TV broadcast of the Columbus Crew MLS match last weekend?

Our very own KYLE ATKINS was selected for his first MLS match and did an outstanding job with a number of great offside decisions. This assignment followed his recent selection to represent US soccer in Finland as well as his numerous NWSL assignments over the last two seasons.

Kyle has shown amazing work ethic and preparation. He has been working toward this moment for years with daily workouts and constant refereeing engagement. Kyle has represented Kansas at numerous youth and adult tournaments and has worked the Papa Johns tournament for us in Wichita numerous times.

Your dreams can come true if you work hard enough!!



Extra Water Breaks Being Added to Games at Southlakes

Due to the excessive heat and humidity, SCSA will provide water breaks during each game at the Southlakes soccer complex.  The brief breaks will be taken mid-point of both first and second half but no stoppage time will be added.  Referees will be responsible to blow the whistle to initiate the break and restart the game.  Players are to remain on the field during these breaks but are allowed to go to the sideline for water.  Please make sure there is adequate water available for all players during the games.  Breaks for the U5 and U6 players should be directed as needed with both coaches in agreement.
