Three Preseason Level 4 Referee Courses
Published: 2/03/2016 4:10:00 PM
We thank our Referees Branch Management Committee for the amount of time and voluntary work given to run the three courses held throughout February, 2016.
February 13th and 14th saw 18 juniors become accredited. February 20th saw 7 seniors sit the course with complete enthusiasm with two women among them, which is an exciting prospective for the future of female refereeing in football. We are about to have our last night of our third course which has been held over four nights for both juniors and seniors. A further enthusiastic group of students helping to become part of the solution.
Our new referees were given a complete guide and education as to the LOTG along with a practical session to simulate the game itself and what to expect and how to make decisions when on the pitch.
They were instructed by our Branch Coach John Garcia and fellow Instructor Jack Bell and ably assisted by members of the Referees Management Committee along with fellow referees.
We trust our new referees will be welcomed on the park as for some, they begin their refereeing career with ESFA and beyond.
We continue with our positive improvements within the ESFA Referees Branch with our education and assessment program.
