Safeguarding and FA DBS Checks
Learners who intend to referee youth football matches will need to have an in-date FA DBS check, in addition to completion of the Safeguarding Children Course. We will provide instructions on how to apply online for a DBS before the course begins.
Youth football includes competitions or matches involving under 18 teams or younger. Referees in open age football are not required to have a DBS although this may be subject to change in the future. They are required to have completed the Safeguarding Children Course.
If parental consent is not given, the learner will not be able to attend the face-to-face elements of the course.
