Introductory Referee Course

Introductory Referee Course

Renfrewshire Referees Association will be starting an introductory referee courses starting on September 2nd 2020. The course will take place on the Zoom platform over 10 weeks taking place each Wednesday evening at 7pm. Within the class candidates will learn Laws of the Game with an exam on the final week.

Support is given to new referees and a mentor will be arranged to provide guidance in the early stages of your refereeing careers. Direction will also be given on suitable leagues to commence refereeing. Refereeing is a great opportunity to keep fit, create new friends and travel all over the country.

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


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
