Refereeing is a great way to be involved in the game - not only do you get to see all the action from the best position on the field, but it will keep you fit, you will meet new and interesting people, and earn money at the same time.
The Level 4 Referee Course provides participants with education and training to become a referee. The course consists of theory modules, practical sessions on a pitch to enable referees to begin refereeing at community level.
The aim of this program is to educate new referees on the FIFA Laws of the Game and disciplines of refereeing, to uphold these laws, standards of the game and contribute to the enjoyment and fair play of football.
If you are interested in becoming a referee or know someone who is, the dates for upcoming Referee Level 4 courses have been announced by Football South Coast.
Registration is via the Football South Coast website. Go to the referee's tab and follow the instructions. The first course, on 26th and 27th February, is full so those who are interested should get in quick to register for the second course.
