The SSOA Executive Board realizes the need to recruit and retain the new soccer official.  This program is therefore intended to aid the new official in gaining a  positive experience in high school soccer officiating.  Likewise, the seasoned official will have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy  by assisting the new official with “tips” and insights gained through real world “ on the field “ experience.
