Future Association Meetings

Category : News

Hello to All Renfrewshire Referees, we hope you are well and safe at this testing time.

I know we all must miss some our refereeing so in order to have some level of engagement we are proposing to go through the most recent issue of Coaching Videos which was earmarked for Meeting 5 – Challenges.

To do this we need to gauge your interest and we have two dates in mind

– Monday 27th April @ 8pm
– Monday 4th May @ 8pm

The coaching will take place via the web platform Zoom, ideally you would all have access via a laptop, tablet or at worse case a phone. We would share the videos with myself and Barry coaching through the notes, ideally with some involvement from you all.

Please indicate your preference and willingness to join us by completing this poll – https://doodle.com/poll/9wmxyzakmy5d8mw7

Ideally you would have this completed by close of play tomorrow.

We will be back in touch over the weekend with the preferred date and the joining instructions.

Many thanks and take care.

David & Barry

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.
