Mission & Values


The South Central Minnesota Soccer Officials Association (SCMSOA) develops and supports referees who serve the sport of soccer.

  • We recruit, train, assign, and mentor officials to meet the needs of soccer programs in our service area.
  • We help new and experienced referees reach their potential.
  • We promote fair play, healthy competition, and positive values.

SCMSOA is affiliated with the Minnesota State High School League as a Charter/Legacy Association.  Our members also serve other levels of the game, particularly youth soccer.


Our core values are commitment, integrity, and respect.

  • Commitment is our dedication to service and the pursuit of excellence.
  • Integrity is the honesty and courage to do what we believe is right.
  • Respect is the dignity with which we treat the game and its participants.

These values inspire us to do our best.  They are the bond that unites us in a common purpose.

We help each other to uphold our shared values, on and off the field.
