Young referees gain officiating experience in youth soccer

Not only do players look to gain match experience during the Triple J Auto Group Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League, young referees also gain from officiating youth matches at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

During the league’s spring season, Catherine Halili started officiating U10 matches, and beginning this fall, she accepted a promotion to officiate U12 matches.

“Officiating in the U12 division is really challenging compared to my experience with the U10 matches,” said Halili, 18, from Dededo. “At the U12 division, players are more mature and the field is bigger, but the biggest difficulty I think is learning the offside rule and enforcing it properly during a match.

“I just started as a referee earlier this year because my friends asked me if I wanted to try. Once I started going to courses and getting assignments, I really enjoyed it. As a referee, you learn a lot about the game’s rules and it also helps me improve as a player and coach, too,” Halili added.

Mini futsal tournament held for at-risk visiting students

Thirteen-year-old GianCarlo Abril thoroughly enjoyed a rare opportunity to play in a mini-futsal tournament with visiting students from Japan at the University of Guam Fieldhouse and hopes to participate in future exchanges.

“It was a great event to interact with people from different cultures who play the same sport,” said Abril, an incoming freshman at Father Duenas Memorial School. “We don’t have many opportunities to play futsal, so this was a great experience for me, and for others on the team. I’d love to participate in future events like this one.”

Abril was one of a handful of Guam’s U14 and U16 national team training squad members who competed against visiting students from Japan’s Wasegaku High School system during their annual excursion to Guam.
