What is available to support referees?
As a registered referee in Gloucestershire there are various avenues of support we can offer you depending upon your needs and ambitions within refereeing.
Initially every referee that attends the Referee Course is entitled to have a Mentor that will support them through their initial five games.
If you are new or inexperienced, particularly under 18 you may apply to join our Referee Academy Group which will provide you with support and development opportunities linked to the professional clubs and their academies in the County.
If you apply for promotion you will receive observation and attend in service training to help develop you in preparation for moving up to the next level.
When you reach level 5 and apply to be promoted to level 4, we offer the opportunity of a referee coach to support you to develop and achieve further progression.
