LCA Ryder Referee of the Year


Maya Ryder | 2019 Young Female Referee of the Year
 | 2019 US Youth Soccer Midwest Region Young Female Referee of the Year

Maya began playing soccer when she was 5 years old and started refereeing in 2016.  Maya’s desire to get better in refereeing led to the confidence and capacity to referee as a center official within her first year of refereeing.  Most recently this was acknowledged by her selection to attend the 2019 Midwest Regional Championships of the National Cup series, with very positive reviews of her work at the event.  Maya’s keen personal interest and persistent application of her talents to the game of soccer support this nomination.  Maya is also involved in many community service efforts to help influence, impact, and better her community.
