“The trouble with referees is that they just don’t care which side wins.”

Referees are an integral part of any soccer program. In AYSO Area 1-C, our referees devote much time to learning the Laws of the Game and the proper application of those laws and they do it all without compensation. Referees are there to make sure the match is safe, fair and fun for all involved. Win or lose, please thank them for their service.


David L. Margrave, 1948 – 2015, Update

by Scott Davis on June 21, 2015

It is with great sadness that I am sharing the news of the passing of David Margrave on Thursday, June 11.  Dave has been a long time referee volunteer in Area 1C and Region 214, South Pasadena, with an indomitable spirit even as cancer has taken its toll on his body.  As recently as this April, Dave was still pursuing his National Referee badge and volunteering wherever and whenever he was asked.  He will be missed.


The family has planned a Memorial Service for Saturday, June 27, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Garfield Youth House that Dave helped rebuild in 2007.  The Youth House is located just north of the tennis courts in Garfield Park, located at 625 Stratford Avenue in South Pasadena.   

Section One is hosting another roadshow, this time in Hawthorne.

Please see flyers for all the classes offered.
