To support our Referee workforce during this period of no football and government instruction to stay home, we have re-launched and reworked an Online Referee Development Group to enable registered Referees to continue their learning and development.
The group will provide Referees with online CPD, fitness/training tips whilst at home, weekly updates, quizzes and more over the coming weeks.
Using the HIVE online resource platform, this is an opportunity for Referees to have access to support, guidance and training opportunities online as well as the ability to discuss refereeing topics and talk football as a group.
The group is available to all Berks & Bucks FA registered referees for free who, by opting in to join the group, will receive weekly updates, quizzes and clips to aid learning and development. To access the group just send us an email including your name and email address and FAN (don't worry if you don't know it, we can find it) by using the link below. You will also need a HIVE account which is free to create and is available as an app or via desktop.

Whilst this quiz is designed for Referees, should any coaches, players or football fans wish to test their knowledge of The Laws of the Game, please feel free to get involved and complete the link above! From time to time, for fun, we'll make some of the quizzes available to the public through our social media channels.
