Berks & Bucks referees are lucky to have a great number of local Referee’s Associations who are ready to support new and existing members.
Local Referee’s Associations meet monthly where referees have the opportunity to connect with other referees with varying levels of experience and discuss all things refereeing. Whether that is to talk about local grassroots matches or even hot topics from the top level of the game.
Being a referee can be a lonely place sometime and it is important that everybody has somewhere they can go to talk about refereeing. Whether that is to seek advice on an incident from your match, from how to deal with a challenging situation or to have the opportunity to hear from one of many guest speakers across the course of the season.
In addition to local support, being part of the Referee’s Association will also entitle you to exclusive partner discounts, specialist insurance as well as the opportunity to attend National development events.
Each branch holds their meetings on different dates throughout the month. Details of the meeting dates, location and the contact for each Berks & Bucks branch can be found below:
Why not make contact with your local branch and go and see what it is all about?
