Ref Coach Training

New Referee Pathway for 2022/23 Season

Changes to the Referee Promotion Pathway

New Referee Pathway for 2022/23 Season

This season the Football Association has made a change to the referee promotion pathway. To support our Army FA referees, who looking to progress up the referee pathway, we are training our volunteer workforce in the new Match Day Coach, Mentoring and updated Observer roles.

Last month, the first of two sets of courses was held at the Football Development Centre in Aldershot. Nine of our referees took part in some or all of the training, and are now able to support on matchdays. The next set of training will take place over 13th and 14th September in Catterick and is open to all current affiliated Army FA Referees.

If you would like to attend or have any questions about the training please email for more details.
