The Iowa Referee Committee (IRC) has a YouTube Channel, Facebook Page, and Twitter Feed. You can Subscribe to us, Like us, and Follow us. We also use the 'Team' Smartphone App and have a recommended RSS Feed. Lots of different ways to be engaged with the referee and the soccer community!
Our intent with the 'Team' App is to provide you with resources that you can use on game day, keep you up-to-date with important news, major events, and tournament info, allow you to chat with other referees, and more. In time, we want to be able to use 'Team' to link you to a mentor. The heads of delegation for both Midwest Regionals and the Region 2 Presidents Cup use 'Team" to communicate important information to the referees and mentors / assessors who are the Iowa Delegations to these tournaments.

The IRC Facebook Page is used to share interesting information and need-to-know updates from the U.S. Soccer Referee Department, US Youth Soccer Midwest Region, and neighboring States' Referee Committees. General discussion threads, Recertification / Registration reminders, and features from the annual Terry Vaughn Referee Academy are also shared here.
The IRC Twitter Feed is a great tool to instant message Iowa's Soccer Referee followers quickly to keep them informed by micro-blogging what's going on without having to spend a lot of time crafting an entire post on the subject.
