The Latest Lincoln Soccer News

A couple quick soccer-related notes:

First, tonight is a mandatory soccer rules meeting for anybody who wants to officiate varsity high school soccer matches this spring. The meeting is at 7:00pm at East High School. We are always looking for new referees, so if you’ve ever thought about reffing soccer, now’s a good time to get started. If you can’t attend tonight’s meeting, there’s another one tomorrow night at Omaha Westside. If you want to ref at the sub-varsity level, the meeting is not required but I recommend it anyway. As always, if you’re interested in reffing soccer at any level in Lincoln, drop me a note and I’ll help you get started.

Second, all you adult soccer players out there will want to know that a new adult league is on its way to Lincoln. The details aren’t yet set in stone, but the Midwest Amateur Soccer League (MASL) could be up and running as soon as April 1. The first season may have as many as 32 teams, and should feature Division 1 and Division 2 competition. (Lincoln hasn’t had a D1 league in many years.) Where is Lincoln going to get that many teams and that level of competition? League organizers have cast a wide net, and they’ve made some pretty interesting catches. If you’re a soccer player, keep a lookout for more information.
