Referee Development Programme

A Referees Development Programme in Herefordshire has been in existence now for over two years and its prime aim is to bring on the cream of referees in Herefordshire. It’s an exciting project that’ll see us train the best young referees in the area. Coaching will include the likes of positioning, fitness, how to deal with players, application of laws of the game and even diet and nutrition.

The Herefordshire FA are pleased to announce a Young Referee Development Programme and is aimed at officials aged between 15 -26 years who show potential in the early stages of their career, and are keen and enthusiastic to progress. The group will have regular training sessions during the season consisting of physical training sessions, classroom training seminars which are both interactive and informative. 

If you wish to apply to be a member of the group please complete the attached application form.  The development programme is aimed at committed referees and therefore if you are playing football or coaching regularly then you cannot apply.  

Attached is a booklet which outlines the Young Referee Development Programme.  Please note all applications either by post or email must be submitted by 1st August. You will be notified if you have been successful in being a member of the Herefordshire FA Young Referee Development Programme shortly after.
