Club Workshops

A number of clubs have requested that the County FA organise a workshop for their members and parents alike to have a better understanding of what is required for a Club Referee.

The Hertfordshire FA offer two Club/League/Organisation educational workshops aimed towards Parents, Coaches and Managers in ‘Running the Line’ and ‘Refereeing a Match’, which are extremely beneficial if you have to provide these roles for games when no registered match officials are available.

We will provide the tutor and all the materials required to run the workshop and all we need from your side is to provide some optional midweek evening dates and a venue that has a high enough ceiling to raise an assistant referees flag and big enough floor space to accommodate the attendees.

An application form is required to confirm the details, please download the form here.
