Some very special guests helped AYSO rededicate the Ken Aston Learning Center last Friday. AYSO Hall of Fame members Bill Mason and Brian Davies were on hand, along with former AYSO National Executive Director Tom Tobin, AYSO National President Mark Stewart and AYSO National Executive Director Ian McMahon, to cut the ribbon.
Aston was an English teacher, soldier and referee, who was responsible for many important developments in soccer refereeing including the introduction of yellow and red cards.
Aston, Mason and Davies were all instrumental in pioneering the current AYSO Referee Training Curriculum.
