I was fortunate to attend the 2003 Soccer Festival in Houston, TX, with both Pat and Heinz Wolmerath. Between the two of them, it was maybe the best learning experience I had with refereeing.
Pat's lessons are as pertinent today as when he began. Keep rocking, Pat!!

Thank you.

One of the things I enjoyed the most about being a member of the soccer community is getting to Pat Smith and people like him (people who got involved with the sport because they loved the game and wanted to give something back). Pat, you're the greatest!

I had the honor and privilege in attending several of Pat's clinics in South Texas. His strength was well displayed in his simple approach to teaching at the referee's level. The very best to you Pat.


You were in the CoMo? I'd love to set up a referee roundtable with you in Springfield, MO next time you are in-state.

I am proud to see that my father and many of his associates received proper recognition for the dedication to and sacrifices they made in the name of the sport they love!!
