This week the entire Surf Soccer Family lost one of it’s family members. Jim Kerr, our longtime referee assignor and contributor to 2+ decades of events and a close personal friend of mine and also many within Surf organization passed away. Jim’s many years of service, leadership, and dedication to our events was always appreciated and he will be greatly missed. Over the years Jim brought in some of the finest referees to our events from all over the world. One of Jim’s favorite stories was a coach from an out of state team accused the ref of his game being a homer, then Jim told the coach this ref was a FIFA ref from England about 5,000 miles away from being a homer. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, and his many friends in youth soccer at this difficult time.

With Respect
