Training & Workshops

Develop your game

 in order to stay on top of your game, it's important you continuously look to develop your existing skills and learn new ones. 

As a Middlesex FA Referee you will have access to all the training and support needed to do exactly this and take you as far as you want to go in your refereeing career.

Whether that's officiating in local leagues or in the Premier League, we're here to support you every step of the way. Explore this section to learn more about the training and development opportunities available to you. 

Development Days

Running between 2-3 times a season, Development Days are available for all Middlesex FA Referees. Similar to the In-Service training a number of drills are delivered by Middlesex FA Referee Tutors and topics covered with the aim of ensuring all referees are comfortable with every aspect of officiating.

Development Groups

Age between 14-18? Development groups are a great way for young referees to gain knowledge, experience and techniques to aid their refereeing careers. Development groups act as the first step into the Refereeing Academy and those that have impressed with their professionalism, attitude, performance and commitment will then be considered for membership for the Middlesex FA Referee Academy.

Cup Final Evening

Cup Final evening is a chance for officials that have been appointed to Middlesex FA Cup Finals to meet their colleagues and take part in a number of scenarios aimed at making sure they are ready for their final. The evenings usually involve a Guest Speaker and are also a good chance for referees to share best practice and exchange previous cup final experiences.

Middlesex FA Referee Workshops

Need advice on the latest laws of the game? Interested in specialising in disability or Women & Girls officiating? Referee workshops are the perfect way to do all this and more. Upcoming workshops will appear in our 'Upcoming events' section below.
