“We have had the most successful, smooth running seasons working with Metro Atlanta Referee Association. Each weekend I am fully confident in our club’s referee assignments, and that is really priceless! The ref crews MARA provides are very well trained, efficient, and dependable. They have brought very positive change to club, and have increased our overall success. We are lucky to have them working at Georgia Rush.”

“Becoming a referee with GA Soccer starts with a class, but at All In FC Snellville with Jim Porter from MARA it is more than just an afternoon and a yellow shirt! Jim Porter continues the training and support by being a familiar presence at the fields, for referees, coaches and parents! He watches out for the referees, making sure they are assigned games they are ready for, supporting their calls and teaching them be better with feedback during and after many of their games. Jim takes these young players turned referees and supports their game knowledge, teaches them to think, react and to mentor the young players that they come in contact with during a game. He takes the time to know the referees for their strengths on the sidelines as well as their skills as players. Jim Porter embodies the values of MARA and of our soccer family at ALL IN as he leads by example in his calm demeanor, his support for the players, his love for the game. We have been thrilled with the support, the mentoring, the teaching that our son has gained as he started referee this past fall season!”

All-In FC Select Administrator

“Metro Atlanta Referee Association has been an extraordinary partner for our soccer program. Scheduling referees was often one of the most time consuming and frustrating part of league administration. Since working with MARA, we can depend on professional, consistent and courteous officials for all of our games. MARA ensures that our referees understand our league rules and culture. Billing is convenient and transparent, with no hidden fees or surprise expenses. MARA has enhanced the quality of our soccer program and would be a tremendous asset to any league.”
