The Refereeing Disability Football Workshop is back for the 2023/24 season, following successful delivery last season.
The workshop is aimed at referees with limited or no experience officiating disability football who wish to develop their ability to officiate football, involving a range of disabilities and impairments.
Topics covered will include the disability football landscape, how to utilise effective communication, use of terminology, and best practice when officiating a range of disabilities and impairments. The course will include both theory and practical aspects, including the opportunities to officiate disability football to gain a first-hand insight of the skills needed to officiate disability football.
Once completed, referees will be equipped with the competencies and experiences to officiate disability football, and will be supported to officiate on the Lincolnshire Ability Counts League.
The workshop is free of charge.
