Tournament Organization

Organizations occasionally will organize tournaments for fun. The teams are often "pick-up" in nature. The players will range from former professional to "haven't kicked a ball in 20 years".

These organizations will contract with Pensra to provide referees. These assignments can be a lot of fun and sometimes challenging. You never know.
