Tommy O’Brien (Author, “It’s Your Call!” & “7 Ways to Upgrade Entry Level Referee Training & Officiating”) has a 20 year career as a Referee, Instructor, Coach, and Internet Clinician.  He created and managed the required “In the Game” Mentor-supervised training for newly licensed officials in Santa Clara, CA, which became the foundation of his website, SoccerRefereeMentors.com

He saw that there was a need being overlooked by most Leagues: training for the Center Referee.  His website aims to fill this void and provide resources for Leagues to create their own training programs, especially for Center Referee’s.
