Club Linesman Referee

Training & Workshops

"In order to stay on top of your game, it's important you continuously look to develop your existing skills and learn new ones."

The Jersey FA Referee Committee runs a FA Referee Courses twice a year.

The FA Basic Referees Course is designed for anyone aged 14 upwards who wants to join the tens of thousands of referees who operate week in week out on local parks, throughout the English football pyramid, up to those who officiate The FA Cup Final and on the International stage.

As a referee you play an integral role in ensuring all participants enjoy their match day experience, helping create a competitive, fair, safe and enjoyable playing environment. Whether you want to referee in youth and adult leagues, men's or women's football or have aspirations of one day walking the ball out at Wembley Stadium, the FA Referees Course is the starting point for your refereeing career. Refereeing is not only rewarding in a football environment, but the social and life skills that come from becoming a referee extend far beyond your initial expectations.
