Kent FA is pleased to announce that aspiring referees across the county can now register for our forthcoming online Get into Refereeing WorkshopS, which take place on Thursday 27 August 2020 at 7.00pm and SATURDAY 5 SEPTEMBER from 10.00am.
Hosted by Kent FA’s referee department, the online workshop is perfectly suited for anybody across the county interested in getting involved in refereeing during the 2020/21 season.
The online workshop is designed to give all aspiring referees an insight of the types of courses available, the requirement needed to complete the course, what refereeing involves and the challenges that could be faced as a match official.
The workshop is approximately 90 minutes in duration, during which participants will be guided through the refereeing experience, looking at all formats of the game and the opportunities available within the county. If you decide to begin your refereeing journey here, the Referee Course (9v9 and/or 11v11 football) will only be a few weeks away.
Following successful attendance at one of these workshops, an individual will be able to then enrol onto a Referee Course. The links of future referee courses will be provided after attendance at this workshop.
Kent FA requires a parent/guardian of all candidates 17-years-old and younger to attend this workshop, to gain a full insight and understanding of the commitment required to complete all aspects. Any accompanying adult does not need to book on the course or pay if they are not going to proceed with becoming a referee themselves.
