This large Regional event will be held in Overland Park, Kansas on June 13-17, 2019. Simular in format to the scope of the other youth regional event, Missouri will nominate 14 referees and 3 referee coaches to attend based on the full number teams from Missouri that will attend. The event will pay each referee or assessor/mentor a $200.00 stipend electronically after the event from US Youth Soccer. Those details will be shared by the Regional staff AFTER you are accepted. In addition after the event, MYSA will pay each referee that stays the entire time $150.00.
The housing is in 2 dorms at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS. Males will be housed in one dorm and females in the other. The cost of the rooms ($55 a night or $275.00 per person and based on 2 persons per room) will be paid by the state youth program beforehand. All referees and referee coaches will be required to submit waivers to attend, regardless of age. The dorm is providing breakfast each day, along with free wi-fi while staying there. Lunch daily will be at the complex, with daily assignments of 2 games per official.
Those wishing to attend should plan on working state level President's Cup games. The head of delegation will be Rick Gamboa, and all participants must comply with Missouri requirements to attend. Those requirements include staying the whole time of the event, regardless of assignments. June 12 and 18 will probably be travel days, and per MRDP requirements car-pooling will be required where possible for travel reimbursement. Anyone living in the KC area will be required to stay at the hotel because of Region 2 occupancy contractual committments, as well as attend the training meetings.
