Cy Palmer Awarded Excellence in Officiating by Tacoma Athletic Commission
Posted Oct 19, 2016

Congratulations to our very own Cy Palmer!  He was presented the Excellence in Officiating Award for Soccer at the 2016 Banquet of Champions ceremony hosted by the Tacoma Athletic Commission and the Shanaman Sports Museum on Thursday, June 23, 2016.

We are so proud of Cy!

"Cy Palmer has officiated soccer for the past 30 years and continues to serve as a referee for more than 100 matches per year.  He is a local club assignor for the Fife Milton Edgewood Junior Soccer Club and served in various roles on the Pierce County Soccer Referee Association for more than 10 years.

Palmer is well known for a charismatic style and has been called the "best U11 referee ever" by his assignors.  Earlier in his career, he would referee more than 300 matches per year.  Players, coaches, and parents love seeing Palmer walk onto the pitch, knowing they will see a fair and well-called match.  He picked up the nickname "Play by Play Ref" after a local blog wrote about his positive comments throughout the game encouraging the players, including comments like "nice pass" and "good thinking".

Palmer competed in baseball, football, and motorcycle racing, and has coached 15 years of Junior United Soccer and three years of Little League.  One of his highlights off the soccer field was finishing the Barstow to Vegas motorcycle race."
