Ø Offside – Practical Session
Ø Supporting the Referee – Practical Session
Registration will be from 6.00pm and the workshops will commence promptly at 6.15pm and conclude for around 9.00pm.
We have limited places on each workshop so we would advise booking your place ASAP to avoid disappointment.
Please note that the dress code for the workshops is sportswear, i.e. a tracksuit, but you should bring a change of training kit for the outdoor sessions.
The outdoor sessions will take place on grass, and therefore you should bring football boots as per a normal match day.
Please ensure that you bring your own flags and a whistle. (We will have a limited supply for those who do not have an AR flag)
Given that the weather is likely to be warm, please ensure that you bring a water bottle, or some form of drink, in order to stay hydrated and alert throughout the evening.
A full confirmation and final agenda will be sent to all delegates a few days prior to the workshops.
