RDC Referees in orange

Jersey FA Referee Development Centre

Sponsored by the One Foundation

The Jersey FA's Referee Development Centre provides a 20-week programme for young people looking to take the first steps into refereeing.

Linked to the Centre of Excellence, a three hour theory and practical session is delivered each week for young referees to learn and officiate games in a high quality learning environment.

The RDC provides officials, who have recently completed their FA Basic Referee Training Course, with the opportunity to work as a team under the guidance of coordinator Paul Daniel.

Jersey FA Football Development Manager Brian Oliver said: "We are delighted that the One Foundation have been so supportive of our vision to provide a programme to support the next generation of referees and assistants. The One Foundation support has enabled us to cover costs which includes the provision branded referee kit for all our young officials. We are also extremely grateful to a number of experienced referees who have been so supportive of this initiative."
