The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast has been working diligently to help resolve a significant crisis impacting youth, club and high school soccer.
Adam Scott is a New England Soccer Journal contributor and is also the head boys varsity coach at Pembroke (Mass.) High School, and the League Director at the New England Premiership (NEP). He played his high school soccer at Weymouth (Mass.) High School, where he helped the program win two state championships in the late-1990s, and then went on to play at the University of Vermont.
Scott joined the podcast to further discuss the alarming referee shortage at all levels of soccer, which was also the subject of his columns in each of the last two editions of the New England Soccer Journal magazine. He spoke about just how serious the problem is and the steps being taken to address it, and the process of fixing it.
