In collaboration with the CIFA Referees' Department it will start a Beginners Referee Course from 18 to 26 June. CIFA is looking for people interested in becoming certified referees and assistant referees to officiate in local football matches. “Referees perform a vital role in the global sport of football, ensuring safety, fairness, equality and enjoyment,” said Bruce Blake the general secretary.

“With the growth in football's popularity, particularly among women and youth, the demand for officials is always increasing. Joining the ranks of a CIFA referee can be your gateway to the FIFA international panel of referees,” he added.

The course is open to all interested men and women from the age of sixteen and who maintain a reasonable fitness level. Classroom sessions will be administered on June 18 – 21 with revision scheduled for June 25 followed by a theory examination on Tuesday 26 June. All sessions are scheduled to run between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. each evening at the George Town Primary School.

For registration please send an e-mail to alfredo.whittaker@cifa.ky or marcos.tinoco@cifa.ky. You can also call tel: 949-5775/926-1868 or contact any CIFA referee.
