From the commissioner
The WCSOA executive board has voted to suspend the physical fitness assessment for the 2016 season – there will be no physical fitness test this year. This issue will be discussed at our general membership meeting. Just remember any complaints by schools or brother officials because of lack of keeping up with the play will result in changes to the level of games you will officiate. It is your responsibility to have yourself in shape to officiate to the proper level.
2015 Banquet Awards
The WCSOA held its annual awards banquet Nov. 23 and honored teams and individuals for their service toward high school soccer.
