Referee Beginners Courses to kickstart 2019

The FAI Referee's Department have launched four new courses, for men and women to take their first steps in refereeing.
18th Jan 2019

The FAI Referee Beginners Course takes place over two days, with 15 hours of tuition taking place in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Galway, Wexford, Tipperary and Limerick host the first courses of the year, where the participants will be given their first taste of refeereing.

Courses generally run from 9am–5pm. All participants must attend both days in full.

The practical session will not involve any physical activity but it is recommended that you bring suitable clothing with you in case of inclement weather.

You will be required to undertake, and pass, a 20-question exam on the Laws of the game.

Bring a notebook and pen/pencil. Bring a whistle. Bring an open mind and lots of enthusiasm!
