There has never been a better time to become a referee in Staffordshire.

To help celebrate FA Girls’ Football Week 2018, Staffordshire FA are aiming to support more females through further opportunities in football.

FA Girls’ Football Week is a national campaign aimed at raising the profile of female football and supporting the FA’s aim of doubling the number of women and girls playing and supporting football by 2020.

The week has and continues to be a great opportunity to showcase female football at every level and inspire new players and volunteers.

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing accessible opportunities for all in football, there will be Female Referee’s Courses running in both the North and South of the County. With these courses running during the Easter holiday’s the course is designed to target, inspire and provide further knowledge for all females aged 14+.

As part of FA Girls’ Football Week the Female Only Referee Courses will cost £45 for all candidates, and each candidate will be provided ongoing opportunities to be part of a self-tailored Female Development Group to ensure extended support and guidance during the first steps into a career of refereeing.
