New CASRA President

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you.  As many of you know, we are non-profit referee organization that is run by a volunteer board of directors.  Each year, the five officers of CASRA are re-elected.   As many of you may be also aware, Ed Grimes has moved to the Eastern Shore and decided to step down from the board of CASRA.  I am pleased and excited to tell you that I am the new President of CASRA as elected by the membership over the weekend.    In addition, our Treasurer, John Moore has also decided to retire from CASRA.  John has been with CASRA nearly 20 years.  We elected a new Treasurer, Desiree Ridgell, and she will be in contact with you in the future as well.    John will stay involved with CASRA for a period of time to help us transition smoothly.

I have many goals for the upcoming future of CASRA and I hope to share them with you in the near future.   Soccer continues to grow exponentially in our area and CASRA continues to grow alongside our clients.   We look forward to continue serving you with the quality and professionalism you’ve come to expect from CASRA.   If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

In addition, for day to day matters, Robin Miller, our Executive Director remains the primary point of contact.   Robin can be reached at
