How do I grow as a Referee
Coaching and Assessment
South Dakota State Referee Committee has Referee Mentors and Trainers to support our mission of developing our referees and encouraging them to referee at the highest level possible.
An “assessment” is a type of evaluation of a referee’s on-field performance. It is a formal process that involves a Referee Coach/Mentor observing a referee as they officiate a match, and then helping the referee reflect on their performance after the match.
South Dakota's Referee Assessors are:
Nancy Saunders - Regional Assessor - Yankton
Michael Watson - Regional Assessor - Sturgis
David Clark - Regional Assessor - Rapid City
Guy McNelly - Regional Assessor - Yankton
