Midwest Soccer and the entire USASA family were privileged to honor Julie Ilacqua this past weekend at the USASA Midyear Meeting. Her accomplishments and dedication to the game are astounding, and we get the sense that there is much more to come.
Julie is the former Managing Director of Referee Programs for the United States Soccer Federation. In this position she was responsible for the overall management of the Referee Department for US Soccer until her retirement in 2008.
Julie worked for World Cup 94 at the Detroit venue from 1992-1994 and was a member of the Bid Committee, helping to bring World Cup to the Pontiac Silverdome.
Among the boards she has served on are the Michigan Bid Committee Foundation, NASO Board of Directors (including a year as Chair) and the United States Soccer Federation Board of Directors.
As a referee Julie was the first female to officiate an intercollegiate national championship, but she is genuinely most proud of the heights to which the female referees of US Soccer have worked internationally.
Julie also served on the National Referee Committee, including time as chair of that committee, before she took the position with the United States Soccer Federation.
We are so proud of Julie and we continue to be extremely grateful and deeply inspired by her accomplishments and contributions to the beautiful game.
The dust has finally settled and the results are in. This year’s MSA Ancient Ranger Tournament in Minneapolis saw a record 46 teams registered. And with the Cardinals FC (O30M) finally coming of age we may be witnessing the dawning of a new dynasty in the O30 men’s division.
Teams and individuals from Alaska, Florida, Iowa, Texas, Wisconsin, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Michigan and Illinois came to participate in the Minnesota tournament that many players claim is the highlight of their soccer year.
