The State Referee Committee is saddened by the passing of Ms. Anita Hood. Anita helped develop the initial Metro DC and Virginia State Referee Program (MDCVASRP) in the 1970s and was instrumental in recruiting, training, and assigning what has become one of the largest referee programs in the country. Throughout her more than 40 years of working with the MDCVASRP, Anita helped the program increase from 48 referees to over 6,000 referees. Anita, or Queen Mum as she was known to many, was a friend to everyone who met her. Anita was inducted into the Virginia Soccer Hall of Fame in 2019. Funeral arrangements will be posted when they are available. Please keep Don Hood and the Hood family in your thoughts and prayers.
