Referee Workshop Training

Training & Workshops

Match officials are an integral part of the game. Without them, football, in any format, can't take place.

We are on hand to provide support for anyone that needs it, to make sure every fixture in Derbyshire is covered by a qualified match official.
So whether you're a referee already, someone looking to being their journey, or even someone who is helping out on the day, we are here to help you develop your skills in order to reach your potential.



Derbyshire FA offer educational workshops for parents, coaches and managers to gain an understanding of what’s required to be a club linesman. We offer workshops for volunteers that put themselves on the line and help out the matchday referee.
