Arlington’s Rudd, Moore win South Region awards.

FRISCO, Texas (Dec. 18, 2017) – Arlington Soccer Association’s Kathy Rudd and Rebecca Moore were named US Youth Soccer South Region Award Winners. Rudd was named the South Region Administrator of the Year winner, while Moore earned the South Region Young Female Referee of the Year award.

Both received North Texas Soccer awards in the same category at the Awards Dinner during the 2017 North Texas Soccer Annual General Meeting, which took place in July 2017. For a full list of the North Texas Soccer award winners, go here.

Kathy Rudd – Administrator of the Year

It would be hard to look through any program within Arlington Soccer Association without finding Rudd’s footprint. Rudd has worn many hats while at Arlington, including Competitive Coordinator for the Arlington Premier League and Tournament Director. She was a long-time Dr Pepper Dallas Cup volunteer and has served as the Tournament Director for the North Texas Presidents Cup since it began, as well as the Tournament Director for the North Texas Soccer State Cup.

“I was totally surprised and shocked. I am just so appreciative. For me soccer is so important for our youth, and it is a real blessing for me. My son got me into soccer, and I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many great friends. I believe soccer can teach you so much more outside of the game, and for me it is like a family that you love and looks out for each other,” Rudd said.


Rebecca Moore – Young Female Referee of the Year

Moore is hardworking, reliable, confident and humble. She gives every game her best and brings 100% in all areas of refereeing to every game she does. She has great signals and great communication skills which are vital to be a good referee. She has found time to dedicate to refereeing while being involved in track, cross country, playing soccer, and more. Moore has also accrued plenty of success as a player on the Coventry Christian Academy Varsity Soccer team, where she was the team’s second leading scorer and was named Second Team All-State, Academic All-State, First Team All-District and District Co-MVP, to name a few.

" I was in shock. I couldn’t believe that I had actually been named the South region Young Referee of the year. It is such an honor. This isn’t a job to me it’s my ability to serve the communities that gave me so much. I have played this beautiful game since I was little and being able to give back and serve others is a blessing. I was not int in shock but beyond grateful and honored. We as referees are charged with not making the game, but making the game the best game it can be for the kids playing and to be honored for something like this is just amazing to me. I would like to thank my dad for convincing me to ref on the first place and for pushing me to be my best at everything I do. I would also like to thank Ann Hicks for believing in me enough to nominate me for such an honor. I would like to thank every association that has allowed me to ref for them to further my ref career and gain field experience not only as a player but a ref as well." Moore said."
