The FA Basic Referee Course
In order to become a qualified referee, you will need to undertake the FA Basic Referee Course. The course provides you with an introduction to the Laws of the Game, as well as developing the practical skills required to be a football referee.
The FA's Respect programme provides a series of tools for leagues, clubs, coaches, players and parents from grassroots to elite football - to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game.
