The minimum age to book onto and attend a referee course is 14. There is no maximum age.


Candidates who book onto a referee course are required to read up on the Laws of the Game before attending so that they are aware of the terminology and understanding of law to assist them through the practical course.

All referee candidates are required to complete an FA Safeguarding certification and anyone aged 16+ and officiating in Youth Football will need to have a valid FA CRC certificate in place to be registered to referee any matches

Please note: You will need to create a new FAN for your son/daughter if you already have a FAN yourself, because the FAN used will be accepted as the person booked on.
