Steve Senderovich

Head Referee Coordinator

Being an IT professional by trade, and over 20 years of the beautiful game being my hobby, has allowed me to achieve many accomplishments and soak in several life lessons along the way.

From the wonderful trek of playing the game, coaching, and ultimately refereeing, I have met many wonderful people. I have also had the privilege of officiating in multiple sought-after leagues and competitions, both locally and overseas.

I know that no single approach is the right way to grow every single referee, so I have been trained in a range of modalities including mentorship, instructing, and assessing. Bringing this innovation and team structure to NMSC, I am certain we can achieve new heights of refereeing accolades in a healthy, fun, and supporting environment. We are going to work together and progress one call at a time.
