Becoming A Match Official
There are several reasons why you may want to become a match official.
Perhaps you’ve just hung up your boots and want to stay involved in the sport or maybe you’ve got a bit of spare time and want to earn some money in an enjoyable way whilst keeping fit.
Whatever your reason, courses are frequently available allowing you to get your foot on the first rung of the ladder.
For more information on any of the courses below or to book fill in the application form below.
Once you’ve sat your course you’ll be advised to join a local referee society where you will receive training and mentoring to help you progress. They will give you your initial appointments and attend regularly to give you development tips on how best to progress.
