    RAY MOFFATTE, JR. Soccer

    For more than 20 years, Ray Moffatte, Jr., has set an exceptionally high standard for himself, approaching every soccer match like it will be the last one he ever gets to referee. As he says, "I want both teams to feel like I was the best referee they've ever had."

    Born in April of 1964 in Los Angeles, Moffatte graduated from Tacoma's Lincoln High School in 1982, where he played football and soccer and was the team manager for the basketball team. He attended Washington State University, graduating in 1986.

    Moffatte began his officiating career in the mid-1990s with the USSF and WOA, and he's still active to this day. He refereed the Washington State 4A boys' championship match in 2010 and the 3A girls' championship match in 2008 and was the fourth official at the 2014 NCAA Div. III men's national championship match. Beyond those title contests, he's worked numerous high school playoff matches. He has also worked as an administrator with the South Tacoma Soccer Club (1986-2006) and the Tacoma Pierce County Junior Soccer Club (1995-2014).
