    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – A six-day FIFA Refereeing Assistance Program (RAP) Futuro III course for beach soccer and futsal referee instructors concluded Tuesday in Costa Rica. 

    More than 20 participants from 17 CONCACAF-affiliated member associations attended the conference (July 3-8), which focused on the continued development of match officiating in both versions of the sport.

    Since 2008, RAP has led the way in improving the standard of refereeing through education and support.  With CONCACAF’s clear commitment to elevating beach soccer and futsal in the region, the referee instructors received high-quality training from FIFA instructor Jesus Rubio.

    Through multiple presentations, practical examples and engaging teaching techniques, the instructors were equipped with the tools to disseminate suitably what they absorbed upon their return home. 

    With the valuable assistance of the Costa Rican Football Federation, Ronald Gutierrez (FIFA RAP Development Officer), Ted Howard (FIFA Referees’ Committee member) and Victor Hugo Estrada (UNCAF Development Officer) coordinated the workshop. 

    Representatives from the Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and United States were in attendance.
