REFEREE ASSIGNOR/ MENTOR
referee assignor for CSC is David Griffin. David has been involved in soccer
since being introduced to it as a player in high school when he moved to Maine
and then at the collegiate intramural level. He coached his kids and grandkids
in Cheyenne for many years, then started refereeing in 2010. He has been a
referee for the recreational, competitive, and adult leagues, as well as high
school games in Cheyenne, and looks forward to passing those skills on to
younger referees. If you are interested in refereeing, please contact David at 307.630.8498 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
the spirit of the CSC mission "To Build Character Skill Community",
it is David’s desire to mentor younger referees to develop their character both
on and off the pitch, develop their skills to be the best referees in the
region, and to provide a referee corps sufficient to support the entire soccer
community in Cheyenne.
