My name is Ralph Gutierrez. I’ve been refereeing recreational and competitive soccer for approximately ten years. As a referee I’ve had the opportunity and privilege to provide services to many leagues including ages U8-U18. From time to time I travel with other referees all around Northern California. One and the most important reasons I referee is merely because of the enormous passion that I have for soccer.
I was invited to referee at the District Cup in Lemoore California along with Cesar Medel, Julio Cibrian, and Humberto Gonzalez. We had an amazing experience refereeing both older and younger age groups!

It is great to see District-7 offer such tournament opportunities in the area. Although, this was their first year hosting the event, we felt it was well organized and the competition level was great as well!
We have no doubt that if they hold the event again next year their success would be much greater. Their venue is exceptional and the organizers make you feel at home right away. They are attentive and prompt to your needs! All in all, our experience in August at the District Cup in Lemoore was positive and rewarding!
