Am I the right person to be a referee?
Refereeing any game of football is a challenge, albeit a rewarding and enjoyable one for most people. To this end we would like you to read this document as part of considering whether a referees course is right for you
How do I go about becoming a referee?
The first stage involved in becoming a referee is to make contact with us to discuss your aspirations and the second stage is to attend a Get Into Refereeing Open Evening. These sessions are run throughout the year to allow people to find out more about becoming a referee and the different types of football on offer. For more details about the Open Evening contact Corin Readett, details below.
Spaces on our open evenings can be booked online here . Please note: Candidates under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian – you will be turned away if not accompanied!
