Moorpark AYSO


My wife, 3 pre-teen daughters in middle and elementary schools and I relocated from Illinois to Moorpark California over 20 years ago. A year after our arrival, our eldest daughter who was learning to play the violin decided she wanted to sign up for soccer in AYSO.

Growing up playing soccer for fun, I hoped my oldest daughter would follow in my footsteps and love it as much as I did. After the first season of playing soccer, she decided to sign up to be a referee and asked me to be one as well. Without any objection, I agreed to sign up and get certified as a regional referee

After my first year of refereeing, I was invited by the group of Moorpark referee instructors to participate in the regional referee training for new referees; I’ve been hooked on refereeing since then.

Since my initial certification as a regional referee, I became an intermediate referee, then an advanced referee and most recently, a national referee.  In addition to my referee certifications, I am a referee instructor, referee assessor and previous referee administrator. I am also AYSO trained in conflict resolution and due process.

I have been serving on Moorpark AYSO board either as a general board member and an executive board member for more than 10 years. My experience in leadership positions in corporate America as well as the trainings I received has prepared me for and will be beneficial in my current position as the RC of Moorpark AYSO. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by and work with amazingly dedicated and talented volunteers and board members.

I believe that for any organization to be successful, it must have dedicated members that are passionate about what they do. The current Moorpark AYSO board is positioned to support the region to implement AYSO’s vision and mission.  The mission and its six philosophies make AYSO unique in the community. Over the years, many children that have gone through the AYSO program grow up to be responsible young men and women. I look forward to meeting each of you and together, we will reshape the soccer culture in Moorpark and beyond, continue to have fun serving our AYSO children and promote the learning experience that each child gets from the sport.
