Mentoring & Volunteering
Mentoring and Volunteering
It is important to offer words of encouragement and to be able to praise the strengths in the referees’ game to help boost their confidence for their next match. It is also important to offer advice on a small area of development and give the referee something to work on for their next game.
A mentor can be someone who has years of refereeing experience or someone who has completed the course in the past 12 months or so as they will have recently been through the process themselves.
As a mentor you will be allocated a trainee referee who has successfully completed the practical and theory parts of the basic referee training course and is ready to begin their initial 5 matches.
If you wish to be a mentor and you believe you possess the desirable characteristics of a good mentor please contact the Shropshire FA Referee Development Officer.[No text in field]
