Referee welfare

Looking after our referees

The role of parents

Refereeing can at times be an incredibly difficult job for even the biggest, burliest, most experienced match official.

As youngsters from the age of 14 can train to become a referee, we at Manchester County FA take our responsibilities seriously with regard to their well-being.

When your child enrols on a Basic Referee Course we feel it is only right that you are aware of the training programme that they are preparing to undertake hence why you are invited not only to the course introduction evening but also to the call-back evening once they have qualified.

While attending the programme we believe that your support is vital in helping your child achieve their potential and in order to do that you need to be aware of the steps they will undertake to become qualified as a referee.

The link below sets out in detail the steps they will undertake in the form of a parental guide - simply click on the link to open the document. Your support and the training offered by the tutors will make all the difference to them achieving their goal as quickly as possible.
