The FA Referee Course
The FA Referees Course provides participants with an insight to the laws of the game and their practical application on the field of play. It also looks at the skills required to be a referee.
Candidates should feel comfortable to referee a game of football at the completion of the course, with 75% of the course being in a practical environment.
The Course fee includes
• FA Referee Registration
• Whistle and red & yellow cards
• Enhanced FA CRB Disclosure (where required)
• Safeguarding Children Training (where required)
• Study Pack and Laws of Association Football
• Membership of the RA-FA
• Certificate of qualification upon completion of 5 games
Candidates aged 16 and over only will require an in date FA CRC.
Suitable and warm outdoor clothing with a change of clothing also recommended.
Outdoor activity will take place regardless of the weather conditions.
Re-assessment: Candidates can be re-examined within 1 month after completing the initial examination.
Our next scheduled courses will take place in Summer 2019. The venues and dates are still subject to finalizing, but we anticipate opportunities in June, July & August.
Details will be published the week before Easter, when we have an indication of overall Refereeing Recruitment across the County.
Courses are often over subscribed and availability to referee regularly at peak times is taken into consideration. Post course registration to become an active member of a local league Referee Panel is a pre-requisite.
