Female Coach

Female Only Courses

We're running two female only courses in October


We're running two courses specifically for female participants in October this year. 

The FA courses, open only to women, are a Referee Course and a Level 1 Coaching Course, each providing fantastic insight into the world of refereeing and/or coaching in grassroots football, as well as providing the perfect introduction to each of the different pathways.

Designed for anyone aged 14 and above, The FA Referees Course will allow you to join the thousands of referees officiating matches week-in week-out around the county.  Whether you want to referee in youth and adult leagues, men’s or women’s football or have aspirations of one day walking the teams out at Wembley, the FA Referees Course is your starting point.

There are many reasons to get into refereeing; keeping fit, learning new skills, earning a bit of extra money to name a few, and to further entice more women to take up refereeing we're offering this course for a special price of just £100 which is a saving of £45 straight away.

Delivered by a Female FA Tutor, The FA Female Only Referee Course starts on Tuesday 2nd October at Berks & Bucks FA office in Abingdon and continues throughout October at dates and venues listed below.
