Referee Scholarships

Jerry Felt Senior Referee Higher Education Scholarship

This higher education scholarship was created in memory of Jerome Felt who was a referee with the Richardson Soccer Association. Jerry was a wonderful husband and a fantastic father of his children. Jerry was also a teacher of many young referees coming up through the ranks. He took many younger referees under his wing and taught them how to become a better referee and assistant referee. Many referees looked up to Jerry because of his ability to teach and his honesty. He demonstrated that you can have a great time being a referee. Jerry actually was a soccer referee for over 30 years. He taught and inspired many people as referees. His determination to be the best at what he did lives on in everyone he touched.

The Richardson Soccer Association will accept scholarship applications until March 15th of each year. Winners will be announced at the RSA Spring end of season General Membership Meeting. All applications will be reviewed by the RSA Executive Board to determine the annual winners.
