LRA Expands Support - As of January 1, 2014, LRA supports multiple leagues of all ages, youth and adult in the local area. As soccer has grown, the opportunities and needs for referees has also increased. This is a minor change overall as many of the LRA referees were already being assigned other game they qualified for and the same assigner has been involved for over 5 years. The merging of the game information has begun and will quickly this web site as well as our assigning software will see the combined information. The rates, rankings and a new "Leagues Served" pages are available now regarding these games. The big benefit to the referees is having all the information in one spot that allows us all to support each of these league more effectively going forward. The table in the upper right hand corner of the page is a quick summer of what status the games are for each league.
