A new Modern Referee Association – With YOUR development at the forefront
If you are a referee or looking to become a qualified referee, this is the place for you.

Our new referee association will help you achieve your ambitions as a referee by providing you with support, training and mentoring from experienced officials. We’ll also give you the opportunity to develop your skills, by watching other referees, supporting you at your games and giving you the chance to succeed.

A list of events, and dates for your diary, will appear here.
