2018 ESFA Preseason Referee Courses

Published: 19/01/2018 2:45:00 PM

It’s that time of the year again when we all begin to wonder how we can assist ESFA in ensuring more games are covered in our winter competition by referees and assistant referees!

With every season comes a shortage of match officials. It is time to put your whistle where your mouth is and become part of the solution. Refereeing - it's your call.

Do you have discipline, courage, common sense, wish to earn extra money, give back to the game, be part of the third team on the park and become part of the solution? Then, refereeing may just be for you!

The following courses are currently being offered preseason 2018.

There are plenty of great things about being a referee:

  • actively participate in football
  • help raise the standard of the game
  • develop a network of friends
  • develop your management and communication skills while keeping fit
  • be paid whilst enjoying the sport you love

If attending any of our referee courses, please ensure you complete the online Laws of the Game Certificate which is a compulsory component of the course.
