The FREE to attend, two night course will enable those interested in officiating to take a new, initial step into Refereeing and provide an earning opportunity within the County 5IVES programme.
Candidates will complete both theory and practical sessions, focussing on the specific rules and regulations of the small-sided game. Those on the course will then be observed in a realistic setting and once signed off, will be able to receive appointments instantly.
The introduction of the new course gives those who have considered officiating in the past a variation in the opportunities available. County 5IVES fixtures run weeknights between 6.30 and 10.00pm at venues all over Norfolk, providing an alternative to the traditional weekend needs of the 11-aside game.
In addition, those unsure about going straight into The FA Referees Course now have a stepping stone in which they can trial the world of officiating.
Candidates can start with the smaller formats of the game, with the option to then take the full course to Referee in the 11-aside game.
The County 5IVES Small-sided Referees Course will run on the 17th and 24th of August, between 7pm-10pm and will be held at theFDC - Bowthorpe, Norwich, NR5 9ED.
Once again the course is FREE to attend although spaces will be subject to availability.
