here to support you
We support all referees to reach their full potential
Every match. Every league. Every championship. Referees are integral to a smooth-running game. From local grassroots football played in a park on a Sunday morning right through to the FA Cup Final at Wembley, every football match needs a referee.
At the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA, we offer development opportunities for officials at all stages of their journey; from those looking to become qualified referees to those climbing the promotion ladder. We deliver a range of specific and relevant training to our 1000+ ambitious, dedicated and talented registered referees.
Our dedicated referee development officer is here to support you on your referee journey, please get in touch if you require support or would like to know more about our development opportunities.
All new referees under the age of 18 will be provided with an armband during their FA Referee course.
If you are a current U18 referee, you can order your armband for free by getting in touch.
