January Members Meeting

January Members Meeting

A reminder to all members that our first members’ meeting of 2021 will take place this Monday 11th January 2021 with a start time of 7.30pm.

There will be the usual meeting business and a coaching slot from our Category 1 officials which will be of benefit to you all, even if you are not currently refereeing it will benefit your game when you are able to.  I would encourage you to attend if you can.

Similarly to previous meetings, this meeting will take place on the Zoom platform with full details of how to access the meeting having been emailed to all members.


January 2021 Introductory Referee Course

Looking for a new hobby and something to occupy your time during lockdown? From 21st January, Renfrewshire Referees Association will be hosting a brand new course – “An Introduction to Referee” to prepare you for refereeing when guidance permits.

Details;
Where – Zoom
When – Starting 21st January, every Thursday @ 7pm (10 weeks)

This is a great opportunity to learn the Laws of the Game with an exam to conclude on your final week. Support is provided to new referees and a mentor will be arranged to provide guidance in the early stages of your refereeing career. Direction will also be given on suitable leagues to commence refereeing at your own pace. Refereeing is a rewarding hobby giving you the chance to keep fit, make new friends and travel all over the country.

To register your interest in the upcoming course please register HERE

For more information on the course contact secretary@renfrewshirereferees.org.uk or message us on Facebook or Twitter

Whilst waiting for a reply test your knowledge with our association quiz. This quiz includes questions from the introductory exam and advanced exam.


October Members Meeting

A reminder to all members that our second members’ meeting of the 2020/21 season will take place this Monday 12th October 2020 with an earlier start of 7.15pm. This is to allow us to approve the audited accounts which were sent to members emails a couple of weeks ago.

Similarly to previous meetings, this meeting will take place on the Zoom platform with full details of how to access the meeting having been emailed to all members.


August Members Meeting

A reminder to all members that our first members’ meeting of the 2020/21 season will take place this Monday 10th August 2020 with a 7.30pm start.  Similarly to the AGM, this meeting will take place on the Zoom platform with full details of how to access the meeting having been emailed to all members.

I would stress the importance of attending this meeting if possible, as the amendments to the Laws of the Game will be covered by our association coaches.  Albeit we cannot referee at the moment, you will be required to know them and be able to apply them when we do eventually return to refereeing, so please attend if you can.

You should all have received a copy of the March members’ minutes in last month prior to the AGM.  For anyone who was not in attendance at the AGM, the new management committee is as follows:

President – Graham Grainger
Vice President – Chris Palmer
Secretary – Andy Taylor
Assistant Secretary – Ryan Kennedy
Treasurer – Michael Bonner
Training Officer – Gary Toland
Digital Officer – Barry Feery
Development Officer – Craig King
Schools & Leagues Officer – Ross Cooper


Regional Training Day

***URGENT*** Can anyone who is planning to attend the Regional Training Day at Hampden on Sunday 10th October please let the page, Joe McDowall or John Brown know by Sunday at the very latest please. This day is extremely beneficial to all members category 4 and under and you will receive some fantastic coaching and improve your refereeing massively.

Regional Training Day

Members,

The second 2019 Regional Training Day will take place on 10th November 2019 at Hampden Park and Toryglen.

This is open to anyone in Categories 4, 4 Dev, 5, 6 and 7.

The events of the most recent Regional Training Day were very successful in terms of attendance and feedback which was very positive. The feedback from those attending has also aided us greatly in designing the content of the forthcoming Regional Training Day.

The Regional Training Day will again consist of Practical and Technical instruction so please bring the appropriate footwear, clothing attire, cards, whistles and flags. The course, as in previous Regional Training Days will give you the opportunity to receive instruction and coaching from some of our top match officials and assist your development as a referee. The content of the course will be varied incorporating all aspects of refereeing with advice of the highest quality.

In order to reserve a place at the Regional Training Day please contact Joe McDowall by email.
