SafeSport Update

Annual Training Required

SafeSport training for adult referees does not run concurrently with your referee license - it expires one year from the date you most recently completed SafeSport training. 

Referees with expired SafeSport training are disqualified from officiating, so complete the free 20-minute online refresher before your SafeSport expires to maintain your referee license.   

Referees turning 18 this year will complete the SafeSport core course online after their 18th birthday.

Acacia Ellis Selected as Referee Assignor Liaison

Acacia Ellis was recently appointed to the DCV State Referee Committee as the SRC Referee Assignor Liaison. Acacia replaces Patrick McFall, who moved out of state.

As Assignor Liaison, Acacia facilitates communications between the SRC and certified assignors. She is the first point of contact for resolving issues between referees and assignors, and facilitates coordination among assignors to achieve the objectives of the State Referee Program.

She is a very active volunteer in the referee and assignor communities for Virginia, regional, and national events. She recruits and assigns volunteer referees for the Virginia Special Olympics Championships and provides operational support each year at the Region 1 United States Adult Soccer Association SoccerFest Tournament.

Having lived in both Northern Virginia and the Hampton Roads area, Acacia has forged relationships with many officials and assignors within the state and looks forward to promoting discussions among the SRC, assignors and referees in her new role as the state Assignor Liaison.

Chuck Watts Selected As New SDA

The State Referee Committee appointed Chuck Watts as our new State Director of Assessments (SDA).  Chuck took over the reigns as the SDA on 1 July from Don Torrenti, who is stepping down after serving as the DCV SDA for the past 15 ½ years.  

Although stepping down from the SDA position, Don will continue serving the DCV Referee community as a National Referee Coach.  Throughout the years, Don has assisted numerous referees in their progression from the Grassroots level to the FIFA Panel.  Thanks Don for your many years of service as the SDA and for continuing to serve and mentor DCV referees. 

Chuck is a current National Referee Coach and most recently served as the Area Director of Assessments (ADA) for the Central area.  Prior to that, he was the ADA for the North area.  Chuck began his referee career in 1980 and achieved the grade of National Referee before retiring from active officiating.
