The EKCSRA is devoted to the betterment of soccer officiating in Washington State; especially in the east King County area. Our goal is to assist any (either inside or outside our usual service area) to grow in their pursuit of excellence in the officiating profession. We are an equal opportunity organization, encouraging the young, the minority, the new, the experienced and the retired referee.
It is our goal to assist the local leagues in the development of soccer.
The EKCSRA is a registered non-profit organization in the State of Washington. The group is managed by a Board of Directors, consisting of individuals elected from among EKCSRA's members. In addition, the EKCSRA Board appoints a Chapter Administrator, who performs the Administrative tasks for the organization on behalf of the Board.
EKCSRA cooperates with and supports the principles of the Washington State Soccer Referee Committee.
We also support the efforts of our peer Referee groups, when possible.
