Purpose

The purpose of this State Director of Instruction (SDI) site, SDI-IA.com, is to provide easy access to resources and references in the form of Publications, Videos, Training, and Tests for all Iowa Referees registered with US Soccer.

The intent is for this web space to be a 'one stop shop' where information links integrated from Box, YouTube, Brainshark, and EasyTestMaker can be found quickly and downloaded easily.

Check here also for News and Announcements, Seasonal subject matter, e-Mail Archives, answers to your Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), and for data collected from Surveys and Polls.

Another excellent source of information is the US Soccer Resource Center. The Resource Center is designed to support the referee community by providing access to up-to-date information (publications, forms, contacts, online courses, videos, ...) from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) Referee Program.
