An all-new series coming to a fireplace near you!
It’s late September and Autumn is officially upon us. Trees are changing colors. Leaves are beginning to fall. There is no season like college soccer season, and for those missing those gloriously colorful moments of the beautiful game, we invite you to grab a hot cider and cozy up on Monday evenings, fireside with a very special guest.
In light of Fall being the perfect setting for a sense of comfort, warmth, and reflection, NISOA proudly presents, “Fireside Chats with Chris Penso” featuring guest host, Mr. Fireside himself, former FIFA and current PRO Referee, Chris Penso. Join Chris in this all new Fall Series guaranteed to be sweeter than cinnamon and filled with treats too good to eat. Are we making you hungry yet? Monday evenings just got more interesting, with a perfect excuse to grab that evening Pumpkin Cinnamon Iced Coffee and self-reflect alongside Chris and his officiating aficionados to the crackling and burning of a fireplace. Finally, a relaxed setting where you get to unwind and talk real life with professional referees of all sports, while getting the very best instruction.
What’s a fireside chat without good conversation? You’ll be tuned in within minutes after hearing firsthand life behind the whistle or flag at the professional level. You will get to know legendary sports officials on a personal level over topics like keys to success, climbing the ladder, presence under pressure, and much more. We’re proud to be able to connect you with officiating legends in an off-script manner and give you the opportunity to have your questions answered by sports leaders. We have already received an overwhelming amount of questions and are sharing those with our host. Have questions for Chris and his guests? Send them to [email protected].
Chris is hitting the ground running on the very first episode with none other than FIFA and PRO Referee, Ted Unkel focused on officiating under pressure. Catch the entertaining duo discuss the things you’ve always wanted to hear and listen to them talk about their lives as referees along with the topics you bring to the room via questions submitted.
As a valued NISOA member, we welcome you to tune in with us every Monday this fall, starting October 5th. You can join via the Zoom link provided to you via email. As the weather changes, it’s also time for a change in your self-improvement habits, so, why not do it with the pros?
