On Saturday February 3, 2018 over 30 referees gathered at the Marion Jones Stadium for a physical fitness test conducted by FIFA Instructor Erick Samayoa. While the test was initially designed for our two international referees, interest spread very quickly and thus over 30 referees showed up.
In the end 5 assistant referees passed and 3 referees as well. These numbers should not be seen as an indictment of the referees but more as an incentive to keep up their training to become physically fit since for most this was the first time participating in this test
Notably, 17-year-old Justin Milligan from the Belize District caught the attention of the FIFA instructor when he passed the physical fitness test.
He is a great prospect for Belize and other youths are encouraged to join as there are many opportunities available in the CONCACAF region.
