The State Referee Committee appointed Chuck Watts as our new State Director of Assessments (SDA). Chuck took over the reigns as the SDA on 1 July from Don Torrenti, who is stepping down after serving as the DCV SDA for the past 15 ½ years.
Although stepping down from the SDA position, Don will continue serving the DCV Referee community as a National Referee Coach. Throughout the years, Don has assisted numerous referees in their progression from the Grassroots level to the FIFA Panel. Thanks Don for your many years of service as the SDA and for continuing to serve and mentor DCV referees.
Chuck is a current National Referee Coach and most recently served as the Area Director of Assessments (ADA) for the Central area. Prior to that, he was the ADA for the North area. Chuck began his referee career in 1980 and achieved the grade of National Referee before retiring from active officiating.
Greg Hauck was recently appointed to the DCV State Referee Committee as the Area Referee Administrator for the Central Region of Virginia.
Greg is a USSF certified Referee Assignor, Assessor, Instructor/Coach, and Regional Emeritus Referee. He also served as the Commissioner for the Rappahanock Soccer Referee Association.
Area Referee Administrators form the integration hub of assessors, assignors, and instructors. They focus on the success of referees in their local geographic areas, while assisting the State Referee Administrator in a variety of activities.
Greg replaces Bob Martin, who has served the soccer referee community for 38 years. Welcome, Greg, and a fond farewell to Bob, with our sincere appreciation for all you have done to promote excellence in officiating for so many years.
