Referee Development Group

In addition to the monthly sessions held at Altrincham FC, we run our Referee Development Group for referees in their first two years post-qualifying. The sessions run for this group are aimed at building on the learnings from the Referee Course and early refereeing experiences, and preparing referees for the next stage of development opportunities through County Academies.

All our registered referees will be invited to attend all of the sessions, and there is an expectation that you must attend a minimum of two sessions during the season as part of your ongoing training and development, so please put these dates in your diaries. It is the expectation that you respond to each invitation as a matter of common courtesy, either confirming your attendance or giving apologies for non-attendance.

The sessions on the current rotation are:
Monday 14th September 2020 – “Match Preparation” (Anthony Taylor)
Monday 12th October 2020 – “Recognising Offences” (Stephen Brown)
Monday 9th November 2020 – “Managing Misconduct” (Dennis Phillips and Brian Coyne)

These sessions will be held at Sale United FC, Crossford Bridge, Sale, from 19:30 – 21:15.
