Attending a local Referees’ Association (RA) is a great way to learn and develop with colleagues.
These fun and interactive meetings are held across the county and utilise a number of ways to enhance the experience available to referees. Quiz nights, match observations, guest speakers and curry evenings are just some of the events that take place at RA meetings.
Contact your local RA secretary to find out when the next meeting is!
