New Referee Courses

How to RefereeThe last course at York was in February 2013 at York College:

The format has changed and a Practical Referees’ Course was held at York College in February 2013. This was a great success with 19 newly qualified referees.
The practical format is over 5 modules – but mentored games are still required. The exams have also changed for the better.
The first workshop is an introductory session, following work the candidate has done with pre-study pack information (effectively learning the basic laws prior to the course)

After the course (with emphasis on practical refereeing and application of the laws) the candidate becomes a level 9 referee and has to complete a minimum of 6 11-a-side games. They then return for a newly qualified referee’s workshop. Once this has been attended then they become a qualified referee (level 7/8).
