We are not in a position to deliver any new courses. The FA have revamped the courses and this should be available to deliver later in the new year.
Take a look at the new online Laws of the Game guide. It will help you understand and improve your understanding of the Laws using video demostrations and activities. The guide is for individuals who are interested in becoming a referee and would like to enrol on future courses. Individuals must complete this learning before then attending the FA’s new face-to-face training course (which will be available as soon as Government guidance allows.)
Following the UK Government's 'Roadmap out of national lockdown' [February 22] from Monday 29 March 2021, outdoor grassroots football can return. Please CLICK HERE to find the latest guidance and key information
Furthermore, the GFA office will remain closed and staff will continue working from home. Please send any queries and requests to Support@GloucestershireFA.com and we will respond as soon as we can. Thank you.
