Everton International Academy


SAY Soccer is proud to announce a working relationship with Everton International Academy, which will bring unprecedented opportunity to the SAY Soccer community.


“Everton F.C. represents so much more than one of the oldest clubs in English football. They are known around the world as the People’s Club, and their long-standing commitment to community aligns perfectly with SAY Soccer. We are excited to see the techniques and methods used at the Academy offered to our members” said Doug Wood, Executive Director at SAY Soccer.


Everton International Academy has established a firm footprint in the United States and aim to provide the highest quality technical coaching and training to SAY Soccer member organizations. Through this new relationship, SAY Soccer members will have access to a wide range of coaching education, player clinics, and a global network of soccer schools.

SAY National Referee and Rules Committee Report

The SAY National Referee and Rules Committee Report (SNRRC) has been hard at work over the last year to improve the referee offerings by SAY National. Developments include updates to the SAY Playing Laws Rulebook, which are reflected in a revised version of the intermediate level test (IL-2). The entry level test (EL-7), revised in 2021, will be reused for 2022. 


Active projects from SNRRC include an entry level "train the trainer" module, a game management module, and a presentation to provide a more complete explanation of Law 12 fouls. SNRRC hopes to complete these projects in time for the SAY AGM in July.
