The FA’s Refereeing Walking Football workshop (3 hours) is designed to equip learners with some of the skills and knowledge required to be able to referee walking football safely and effectively.
The workshop comprises some pre-course learning – we’ll ask you to review some video clips of walking football to give you an understanding of what the game is about and we’ll also ask you to take a look at a simplified version of the Laws of Walking Football.
On the day, you’ll learn some of the basics of refereeing, including how to communicate effectively and recognising what constitutes foul play. You’ll also learn some of the fundamentals of walking football, including defining what running is! Much of your learning will be done on the pitch, where you’ll have the opportunity to manage different set-piece scenarios and referee other learners playing walking football.
Following the workshop, you will have the opportunity to put your learning into practice trough practical experience officiating friendly festival fixtures at our Walking Football Festival.
You do not have to be a qualified referee to attend this workshop.
