Referee Course – FA Basic 

Must be aged 16+. Runs from Derby Moor Community Sports College three times per year. As well as a minimum of 19 taught learner hours, the participant will also officiate 5 games before coming back for a final consolidation session. This course leads to registered referee status (either Level 8 Youth Referee or Level 7 Junior County Referee). The FA Referees Course is designed for anyone aged 16 and up 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.
