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 are delighted to congratulate the following referees on their hard earned promotions during the 2014/15 season:
To Level 5:
To Level 6:
3 referees have been nominated to The FA for promotion to Level 4, and we await their decision.
Good luck to the 10 referees who have put themselves forward for promotion during the 2015/16 season.
Certificates were presented at our March meeting by Steve Stewart, Referee Development Manager for Lancashire FA.
