Saturday and Sunday 18th and 19th February, 2017 and we held our third Level 4 referee course attended by 6 seniors and 20 juniors. We consider that a hopeful boost to our refereeing numbers this season should our newly accredited referees choose to register with ESFA.
Once again, our instructors Jack Bell, John Garcia and Kirsty Clee, kept our referees well informed and educated in the Laws Of The Game and amused with quizzes which tested their newly found knowledge.
The practical session was one of our best, with all referees practicing whistling signals, Assistant Referee signals and referee signals. The referees learned about wall management and just how far 9.15 metres is in their own stride! The cooler temperatures of Sunday allowed our referees to up their fitness with our sessions. Those whistles should be heard loudly across the parks this season.
If you would wish to become a referee, please complete an Expression Of Interest Form and should we run another course, we will have all your information on our database to advise you or contact our Referees Coordinator
We look forward to seeing all our new referees on the parks over the season to come, joining the current members of the third team!
