Students gain refereeing qualification

June 11th, 2016

Referee TrainingCongratulations to the boys who took the Football Refereeing course as part of their enrichment studies as they are now qualified to referee school football matches, and could even be paid for it!

The boys studied for 10 double period sessions using a mix of chalk and talk, discussion, videos and practical sessions. In these they learnt about the 18 laws of the game, from the laws governing the field of play and the ball through to fouls, penalties and the offside rule.

Well done to all involved, with particular thanks going to Mr Townsend from I.E.N Refereeing Services who run this particular course.
