The Idaho State Soccer Committee would like to announce that Matthew Huston has accepted the position to be the State Director of Instruction. With Matt taking on the new role of SDI, we would also like to announce that Rich Eveland has agreed to fill the role of District Referee Administrator (DRA) for District III in Boise which was Matt’s previous position. Please join us in welcoming both Matt and Rich to their new positions.

As part of the transition, we would also ask that you all join us in extending our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Riley Jones for the work and service he has offered the referee community over the past few years as the State Director of Instruction.

We are all aware of the many hats Riley holds in the referee community and we know he will always be a servant of the game of soccer. We hope that with him being able to take some time away from the committee and focus on other interests and activities, he may find a new energy in his passion for soccer and sports in general.

2019 has the potential to be a banner year in Idaho for soccer referees and we hope the individuals who have accepted roles to be a part of the administration bring a new energy and focus to the efforts of making Idaho a great state to be a soccer referee in.
