Welcome to the home of Altrincham & District Referees
Altrincham & District Referees’ Society is the local branch of the Referees’ Association. Our members include referees serving all levels of the game, from junior grass roots matches through to FIFA international matches. This range of experience is of great benefit to all members of the society as we help each other to improve and develop.
We meet once per month, running an outdoor training & development session led by FA Referee Tutors, followed by an indoor session covering a variety of topics during the season. In between the two sessions we have time for food and networking! Our programme includes training from Premier League and Football League officials, and is designed to be of benefit to referees from all levels.
We also work closely with the Altrincham & District FA, and many of our members give their time to observing, mentoring and tutoring referees to aid their development.
We’re delighted that the Altrincham & District FA have 27 newly qualified football referees following completion of their latest course at Sale United FC, led by Stuart Kay. After attending a 3 day course in November and passing an exam on the Laws of the Game, the trainee referees have been refereeing in the Timperley & District Junior Football League under the watchful eye of mentors. Having successfully completed a number of matches, they have now been signed off as FA Qualified Referees.
We look forward to the new referees joining the society next season.
Please be aware that the Greater Manchester Marathon will result in travel disruption in parts of the district on Sunday 19th April. Plan your journeys accordingly. Details and a map are in the link.
