FA REFEREES’ COURSE INFORMATION
The FA Referees’ Course provides an introduction to officiating 11v11 and 9v9 football. The course will introduce learners to The Laws of Association Football and their application, delivered through theory and practical elements and focussing on the knowledge, skills and attributes required to operate safely and effectively in grass roots football.

Through a mixture of theory and practical activity, learners will cover:

- Managing re-starts
- Managing players
- Recognising and dealing with foul challenges
- Cautioning and sending-off procedure

Learners must be 14 or over on the course start date.
Before refereeing their five matches (unit 5), leaners must have complied with the FA’s safeguarding requirements.
Upon successful completion of units 1-6, learners will be classified as either a Level Y referee (if aged 14 or 15) or a Level 7 referee (if aged 16 or over). The FA refereeing qualification is awarded only when all 6 units have been successfully completed.
