Shropshire FA Youth Council’s  Young Refereeing Leadership Day 2019

If you’re 14 – 18 years of age, passionate about becoming a referee or a looking to improve your skills as a qualified referee then Shropshire FA Youth Council’s Refereeing Leadership day can do just that. 

This year, to celebrate 5 years since the formation of the Shropshire FA Youth Council, we are doing 5 leadership days spread over the course of 2019. This is the second leadership day and will be focusing on Refereeing and Careers and how you can pursue football as a job.

Throughout the day, young leaders will participate in 3 different sessions; laws of the game, a practical session and finally video analysis. 

The laws of the game aspect of the day will include an interactive activity informing participants of new laws (such as sin bins) and the proceed to talk about career pathways in refereeing. 

The practical proportion of the day will include all participants having a go at being a referee, teaching them correct hand signals, positioning and helping them deal in certain scenarios which may arise on the pitch. Even If you are a complete novice or an experienced referee the day will still be informative and helpful to both. 

The final part of the day is a session on Video analysis and VAR where participants will get to have a go and see how good they would be as a VAR assistant when it comes to deciding whether a foul is careless, reckless or excessive.

All of our workshops will be delivered by experienced and knowledgeable FA and County FA Staff as well as members of Shropshire FA’s Youth Council that are highly enthusiastic and passionate about the development of the next generation within the county.
