Congratulations to Bhavik Dutt on being selected to Cal North 2017 National Championship Game

The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series which took place in Frisco, Texas on July 25-30 with five Cal North delegates working the prestigious event. Isai Baltezar, Mike and Matthew Lanthier, Bahvik Dutt and Bryan Juarez were among the very best to officiate at Far West Regionals and based on their performance were selected to represent Region IV and Cal North.
Bhavik Dutt, pictured on the far right, is one of our own referees who came up in the Modesto Youth Soccer referee system. We are proud of his ability and how he has moved up as a referee in the last few years. Bhavik started doing youth games for MYSA and that lead into other areas as he grew as a referee. He is now doing high school and college games along with working all over California working at very high level assignments and tournaments.
Bhavik also still comes out to meetings for MYSA referees from time to time and offers his help in training our future referees. Thank you Bhavik for the job you have done representing MYSA as a youth referee and the service to our program. 

2017 CYSA D-8 Referee of the Year!

It is an honor to report to you that Madison Zabriskie was named Referee of the Year for CYSA D-8. It goes without saying that we are very proud of Maddie and the work she has done for MYSA and as a referee. She has done a great job with her added responsibilities with games and working with younger referees. Maddie has always got a smile and great attitude towards other referees, MYSA staff, coaches and players.
