Referee Retention and Development
Worcestershire FA runs training and development events for match officials throughout the year. Whilst many of these events are optional, referees are encouraged to attend in order to enhance their performance and share their experiences with colleagues.
We welcome feedback from all of our match officials, so if you would like to see a certain development session topic or want us to focus on something particular, please get in touch.
Referees are eligible to apply for promotion on a yearly basis. If you want to progress up the refereeing ladder and challenge yourself at higher levels of football, then you should consider applying for promotion.
Worcestershire FA's Centre of Refereeing Excellence (WFA CORE) aims to offer additional development and targeted support to match officials within Worcestershire who are identified as having the desire and potential to progress to higher levels of the Referee Progression Pathway.
