Your chance to take up the whistle with refereeing course

Drogheda Notebook

The Louth Branch are seeking new referees for a beginners course being run by the FAI.

It takes place at Oriel Park on August 11 and 12th next.

The time for the course is 15 hours over two days. Courses generally run from 9am - 5pm. All participants must attend both days in full. The practical session will not involve any physical activity but it is recommended that you bring suitable clothing with you in case of inclement weather. You will be required to undertake, and pass, a 20 question exam on the Laws of the game. Bring a notebook & pen/pencil. Bring a whistle. Bring an open mind and lots of enthusiasm !

It's for male and female, 16 years plus.

The course will consist of 14 hours classroom tuition and a one hour outdoor practical session
