Achieve Your Goals expands to include referee course

[April 2, 2018 - Harmon, Guam] Slots are still available for the 7th Semi-Annual TakeCare Achieve Your Goals Women’s Soccer Festival, the twice-yearly event at Guam Football Association tailored specifically for women new to the sport or playing at a recreational level.

This season’s festival is structured into four weekly sessions on Saturdays beginning Apr. 7, which will include the popular women’s festival coordinated by GFA Player Development Officer Bryan Cadiz and GFA coaches. New this season is the first-ever Women’s Referee Course, where participants will learn the Laws of the Game, among other refereeing matters, coordinated by GFA Director of Referees George Stewart. Top participants may receive appointments to officiate in domestic leagues.

“Based on the success of the event in the Fall season last year, where close to 60 women completed a six-week coaching course and have now begun coaching at a youth level, we’ve worked toward offering more with the referee course this season and possibly a women’s administration course next season,” said Belinda Wilson, GFA Technical Director.
