RA 2013 Conference Booking Form available

The Referees’ Association 2013 Conference will be held on 5 and 6 July 2013 at the Hinckley Island Hotel.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Honouring the Past, Building the Future’.

The RA Conference is FREE to attend for all full RA members although there are limited places available so tickets and workshops must be booked in advance. Find out more at the April branch meeting, or download the booking form using the links below.

Whether you intend to come for the Saturday only, or will be attending the whole weekend, there will be other York RA members – and plenty of other referees (including the Premier League officials!) – to socialise with.


There are a range of workshops to choose from, and this year’s topics are:

  • The role of the assistant referee in the 21st Century
  • The role of the referee in managing the game in the 21st Century
  • The role of the referee assessor in the 21st Century
  • Dealing with illegal use of the arm in the 21st Century
  • Judging tackles in the 21st Century
  • Fitness, lifestyle and training for the 21st Century referee
  • The role of the RA in the 21st Century

We hope there will be something for everybody to learn from!

Saturday Lunchtime Arrangements

As you will see from the booking form there are a number of options available for lunch at the hotel you are free to choose from. However, most York RA members traditionally head to a local pub for lunch on the day, so you may wish to consider joining us for this instead.

For more information, and the full booking form, please download the Conference 2013 Booking Form and return it to RA Head Office. It would be great if you can let the branch know you’re attending in advance, so travel arrangements can be shared or people can meet up on the weekend.

Previous attendees will also be more than happy to answer any questions at the April meeting.
