Calling Clubs and Leagues


We are keen to offer club volunteers the training they need to undertake the duties of Referee, Mini Soccer Referee or Club Assistant Referee.

So, we are asking leagues to consider offering subsidies or incentives to those people in their leagues who wish to attend our specially organised referee courses. Together we can raise the numbers and the standard of volunteer refs in the county.

Our two special weekend courses are on Friday 19th October at 6.30pm, Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st October (both 9am to 4.30pm). The cost of all the training modules and materials, the Safeguarding Children Workshop, a CRB Enhanced Disclosure, Examinations and the Referee Registration Fees are included in the £95 fee. Venues to be confirmed.

Cornwall FA will offer every club who books a place on the Referees Course, a free place on either the Mini Soccer Referees Course or a place on the Certificated Assistant Referee Course.

We encourage leagues to advertise these courses on their website and/or in newsletters to their member clubs.

You can discuss these proposals and the possibility of forming a working partnerships with us by emailing Ray Brown, Referee Development Officer, or phoning him on 01208 269010.
